Eat Right for Healthy Teeth

Brushing and flossing are important but eating healthy foods are necessary to provide your smile with the nutrients it needs. For example, eating kiwis for Vitamin C and dairy products for Calcium will help strengthen teeth and bones, essentially slowing down wear and tear from chewing, grinding and more.

Make it a priority at your next summer BBQ to fill your plate with these super foods that are good for you and your teeth:

  • Fruits including blueberries, cherries, kiwi & papaya
  • Vegetables including broccoli, kale & red bell pepper
  • Dairy products including milk, cheese (Cheddar, Gouda or Mozzarella) and Greek yogurt
  • Fish, specifically Salmon, which has the highest content of Omega-3 fatty acids

Your eating habits are directly linked to your dental health so choose your next summer meal wisely. Eating a variety of healthy foods will protect your body, ensure health and provide a strong smile for years to come.
