What lifestyle changes will help my teeth?

13 March 2023

, What lifestyle changes will help my teeth?
There are lots of things you can do every day to improve the health of your teeth. Things like flossing daily, drinking more water, and avoiding sugar can be great ways to help.

Here’s a list of healthy food:

  • Cheese: eating cheese raises the pH in the people’s mouths and lowers
    the risk of tooth decay. It also contains calcium and protein nutrients that strengthen tooth enamel.
  • Yoghurt: is also high in calcium and protein. If you decide to add
    more yoghurt to your diet, choose a plain variety with no added sugar.
  • Leafy greens: they are full of vitamins and minerals while being low
    in calories. Leafy greens such as kale and spinach also promote oral health.
  • Apples: fruits, such as apples, might be sweet, but they’re also high
    in fibre and water. The action of eating an apple produces saliva in your mouth, which rinses away bacteria and food particles.
  • Carrots: eating a handful of raw carrots at the end of the meal
    increases saliva production in your mouth, which reduces your risk of cavities.
  • Almonds: almonds are great for your teeth because they are a good
    source of calcium and protein while being low in sugar.
