Dieting Your Way to Healthier Teeth

Healthy Teeth

You have surely been told repeatedly by your dentist in Rockledge that the way to maintain good oral health and dental care practices is to brush twice a day, floss regularly, and be sure to visit the family dentistry experts at Rockledge Dental no less than twice a year. However, it is worth noting that there are several other lifestyle adjustments you can make that really do make a difference in your dental care and the overall health of your teeth and gums. Changes to the foods you eat can have a significant impact on the ability of plaque and cavity-causing bacteria to take up residence in the mouth.

You should avoid excessively sugary or acidic foods, since they contribute to increased bacteria, which is known to cause dental problems. It is harder to dislodge sticky foods after they are eaten, which increases the chance of dental trouble. On those occasions when you cannot resist these foods, wait 20–40 minutes, and then brush your teeth. The time interval helps to avoid damage to the tooth enamel that can occur if you brush too soon after eating.

Your dentist in Rockledge may have recommended that you eat foods and drink beverages that will stimulate saliva, which neutralizes the acid in many foods and beverages. Dairy products, including milk and cheese, also have neutralizing abilities that help with proper dental care. Sugarless gum containing Xylitol stops sugars from turning into damaging bacteria, so it is also an excellent choice. Eating apples, carrots, celery, yogurt, and sesame oil can go a long way toward improving your dental care and making you a favorite patient with your family dentistry professionals in Rockledge.
