Do You Eat A Smile-Healthy Diet?

Yuma teeth bleaching best price

This post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ explains how specific foods and eating practices influence our teeth.

The Sugar Problem
Sugars get converted by bacteria in the mouth to acids. It is the acids that begin to assault enamel and initiate decay for men and women of all ages. Fruits have high water content which can dilute the effects of the sugars they contain and get the saliva flowing so they aren’t really taboo. It’s the chocolate bars, hard candies, cookies, cakes and pies that are.

Acidic Food Coupling
Oranges, tomatoes, lemons and the like should be eaten as part of a meal to minimize the acidic effects. It is a good idea to eat a variety of healthy foods such as cheeses, chicken, other meats, nuts and milk. The calcium and phosphorus will advance tooth remineralization.

Timing of Meals
The more often you eat the more often your teeth are subject to the decay process. This can be eased by choosing healthy snacks. And keep in mind, the later at night you eat the more likely you are to not only eat unhealthy foods, but to skip oral hygiene altogether.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ we want all our patients to enjoy good dental health and great smiles. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton come to our office for general dentistry services, and appreciate our mercury-free practice. Schedule an appointment with us today!
