Diet Tips and Tricks for Positive Oral Health

Posted .

Halloween is vastly approaching, which means many diets will be coming to an end. This year, our team here at Blue Ridge Dentistry in Boone, North Carolina, offers some tips and tricks to keep in your diet this year, which will help you and your family’s teeth stay in healthy tip-top shape. These tips and tricks include:

1. Water is your best friend. Drinking water is not only essential to live, but also essential to oral health. Water washes food particles away along with bad bacteria. Water also keeps conditions like halitosis and dry mouth at bay.

2. Fruits and vegetables are essential. Everyone knows fruits and veggies help your entire body. Yet, because they are low in sugars and high in fibers they balance out to help clean your teeth and promote saliva production to wash away harmful food particles and acids.

3. Nuts contain protein and are low in carbohydrates. The proteins and minerals found in nuts do not add risk to cavities in your smile. That is because of the acid-producing bacteria from the carbs found within the nuts making them a healthy treat for your teeth.

4. Lean proteins provide low sugar and healthy results. Proteins are very healthy for your smile, especially when they are low in sugar as well. Having lean proteins can strengthen your teeth promoting excellent oral health.
