Posted on 4/23/2018 by Andrew Weber
When it comes to our teeth, and trying to get them healthy there is only so much that we can do. But you on the other hand can do so much more to have healthy gums and teeth.
In this article we are going to list several food items that can help with you get your teeth healthy.
Foods That Can Help Your Teeth
You can eat some sesame seeds to help get rid of the leftover food particles and plaque. They also help re-mineralize your protective enamel. Sesame seeds are really high in calcium, which will help your bones all throughout your body and as well as your teeth. Sesame seeds are a great food to help you get started on getting healthier teeth and gums.
Yogurt is also a wonderful food that can help your bones. It has so many benefits for your gum, and one of the biggest ones is that is has probiotic content. That will help fight off cavity causing bacteria. Eating food that has probiotic properties will help you fight off tooth decay and gum disease.
Another great food is anything that has whole grain. Whole grain has lower sugar than other foods and this can help you fight off gum disease.
Eating pears is another good way to get healthy gums, they actually neutralize acid. This is important cause acid will eat away at the protective enamel which lead to cavities.
Carrots is another great food that can help you get better looking gums. Carrots can help the production of your saliva, and that will help clean all the nasty bacteria from your teeth. Carrots are also high in fiber and vitamin A, which is really good for your body.
Eating raisins are good for your gums because they have antioxidants and phytochemicals, which helps decrease the number of bacteria that grows in your mouth.
Eating apples will actually cause you some gum discomfort if you eat them incorrectly. However, they have plenty of vitamins and nutrients in them that help your gums and teeth, but try cutting up your apple into bite sized pieces so it will not cause you any discomfort.
That is just some of the foods that can help your gums and teeth. If you have any questions or concerns or just want to know more about the foods that you can eat to help you fight off gum disease, please don't hesitate to call us or visit the office, we would love to chat.
