Foods that help maintain your oral health

We know all the basics of oral health care: brush in the morning and at night, use dental floss, don’t eat too much sugar, and visit the dentist regularly. But there are some specific types of foods that can help us maintain good oral health.

The foods we eat play an important role in our oral health maintenance. After all, nutrition is important for each of the trillions of cells in our bodies, including the cells that fix the teeth and gums.

For healthy living and healthy teeth and gums, think twice before you eat and drink. Because it can affect your dental health. Eat a healthy balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. If you are on a diet, keep your physician’s direction in mind when choosing foods.

Here are some foods that can help keep your teeth and gums healthy:

1) Pears

Pears have a stronger neutralizing effect on acid than many other types of fruit.

2) Celery

Eating the freshest raw vegetables is very good for your dental health. Chewing produces lots of saliva, and lots of chewing is required to break down fresh raw vegetables. The bonus of chewing celery is that it breaks apart into fibrous strands that help clean teeth.

3) Cheese

Cheese is very low in sugar and enamel-eating acid, but it’s high in calcium. Cheese also has casein, a type of protein present in milk. Casein has shown a capacity to prevent tooth-decaying bacteria from sticking to teeth.

4) Yogurt

Yogurt also carries casein, which has calcium and phosphates that support tooth remineralization.

5) Sesame Oil

Gargling with sesame oil is a process called “oil pulling.”

Limit the number of snacks you eat. If you do snack, choose something healthy for your body and teeth like fruit or vegetables or a piece of cheese. For good dental health, always remember to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste daily and visit our dentist at Narnolys Dental Clinic regularly. With regular dental care, our orthodontist in Ranchi can help prevent oral problems from occurring in the first place and clamp those that do occur in the early stages, while they are easy to treat.
