Fabulous Foods for Promoting Dental Health

Healthy Teeth

Just about everyone is familiar with time-tested advice about brushing and flossing every day and scheduling dental appointments with an affordable dentist in Pembroke Pines at least two times a year. However, not everyone may realize that there are some other simple dental care strategies that can be used to ensure optimal dental health. By making a few changes to the foods you eat every day, it is possible to greatly reduce the amount of problem-causing bacteria in the mouth and keep the teeth as healthy as possible.

It is important to steer clear of foods that are excessively acidic, sugary, or sticky. These types of foods facilitate increased production of the bacteria known to be the cause of the most dreaded dental woes. In addition, foods that are sticky or gummy are more difficult to dislodge after they are eaten, further boosting the chances of trouble. If you simply cannot resist these foods on occasion, it pays to wait 20 to 40 minutes and then brush your teeth. The time interval is important because it gets rid of the things you don’t want, but prevents damage to the tooth enamel that can occur if the brushing occurs too soon after eating.

In place of the sugary, acidic foods that should be avoided, your dentist in Pembroke Pines will suggest that you try to choose foods and beverages that will stimulate production of saliva, which serves to neutralize the acid that many foods naturally contain. Dairy products such as cheese and milk also have neutralizing qualities that you should try to introduce more often as a terrific dental care technique. Sugar-free gum containing Xylitol is a great choice as well, because it stops sugars from transforming into harmful bacteria. Celery, fluoridated tap water, fresh fruit, yogurt, and sesame oil are all tasty additions to your diet that can go a long way toward improving your dental care, protecting the health of your teeth, and helping you be a favorite patient when you visit your family dentistry professionals in Pembroke Pines.
