FOODS FOR HEALTHY TEETH AND BEAUTIFUL SMILE.
If you want to prevent cavities, how often you eat can be just as important as what you eat.
Learning how food affects your oral health is the first step towards healthy eating.
Some foods actually help to protect teeth from decay and keep your teeth and gums healthier. Lets have a look at the foods that improve oral health.
What to eat?
Whole grains and nuts
Eat whole grains daily instead of refined grains. Whole grains include brown rice, oatmeal and whole wheat bread. Also, nuts like almonds, walnuts etc.
Fiber rich foods
Eat healthier vegetables, including dark green and orange vegetables, eat a variety of fruits.
Cheese, yoghurt and paneer
Cheese also contains calcium and protein, nutrients that strengthen tooth enamel.
The probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, found in yogurt also benefit your gums because the good bacteria crowd out bacteria that cause cavities.
Paneer also has calcium apart from protein. This helps in building stronger teeth and bones.
Chew sugarless gum that contains xylitol. This can help reduce the risk of cavities.
Last but not the least,
It helps flush away bits of food. It also can dilute the sugar acids. Hence, consume water at regular intervals.
