Healthy Eating for Healthy Teeth

Eating a healthy balanced diet plays a very important role in maintaining your dental hygiene. A well balanced diet includes all of the main foods such as, fruits and vegetables, milk products, proteins form meat or lentils. As a part of the oral health advice we provide to our customers we will review the eating habits of all of our patients and ensure you are eating the right kind of food.

Foods that can cause tooth decay

Foods that cause tooth decay are foods with a high concentration of sugar. These are the obvious ones such as, cakes, ice cream, sweets etc.

  • Acidic Drinks with a Low pH ValueFizzy drinks such as coca cola can damage your tooth enamel.
  • Sticky FoodsThese kinds of foods do not get washed away easily from your tooth surface easily by the saliva, hence increasing the exposure of teeth to sugar and acids, and then resulting in tooth decay.

Foods that are good for oral health

Foods that are good for oral health are foods that are high in fibre, such as Fresh Fruits and Vegetables. These kinds of food increase the saliva flow that neutralizes acids, therefore helping to clean the teeth of food particles and sugars during chewing

Rich Foods Without Sugar

These are foods such as milk, yoghurt, meat, fish, rice etc

Fruits and Vegetables That Contain a High Volume of Water

This would be foods such as lettuce, pears, melons, celery, and cucumbers

Good Eating Habits

Ensure you only consume sweets only when at main meals and avoid between meals. Saliva production increases, which will neutralize most acids during mealtime, therefore lessening the hazard of sweets.

Try and finish your food with yellow cheese this will help to neutralize the acids that build up in your mouth, especially when you are consuming sweet foods.
