Are you eating foods that are healthy? Does this include tooth-healthy foods? Oftentimes, we think of the effects that foods and drinks will have on our waistline, but often not as much on what it may do to our gum line. Don’t let bad habits and unhealthy diets damage your teeth and gums. Create a sustainable diet plan that takes into consideration your oral health.

Some foods contain healthy minerals that can save the health of your teeth and gums. Foods high in calcium and phosphorous are beneficial in the formation of tooth enamel and building strong teeth. This includes amazing treats like most types of nuts, healthy meats such as chicken, and dairy products such as milk and cheese.

Some foods are better options for washing your mouth than others. Crunchy and watery foods such as apples and pears are spectacular options for keeping your teeth clean.

Eating habits are just as imperative as what you eat. Eat a wide display of foods for a healthy diet full of nutritious vitamins and minerals, and avoid snacks and treats that are high in sugar.
