If you are concerned about tooth decay, and want to do more than just your normal oral hygiene routine, you might want to change your dietary choices.
The team at Royalton Dental Associates in North Royalton, OH wants your teeth to be as healthy as possible. By including these things in your diet, you can increase your chances of remaining cavity free.
1) Eat your fruits and veggies.
Many fruits and veggies are great for your oral and overall health. Pineapples, celery, and pears are especially good for your oral health.
2) Stick to sugar-free sweets.
If you are eating sweets, especially candy, make sure it contains Xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that actually prevents cavities from developing.
3) Chew sugar-free chewing gum.
As with some sugar-free candy, sugar-free gum may contain Xylitol. When you are looking for gum to buy, you should look specifically for a brand that contains Xylitol.
4) Drink wine and eat raisins.
There are studies that show a chemical component in wine and raisins that fights the bacteria that causes cavities to develop.
5) Consume more dairy products.
There is a protein in dairy products called casein that is extremely beneficial to your oral health. Casein is found in yogurt, cheese, and more!
