As you may know, certain foods can harm your pearly whites. For instance, foods and drinks like soda and candy can damage your teeth and cause tooth decay. However, did you know that there are several foods that could actually help your teeth?
For example, you probably know that an apple is good for your body, but did you know that apples are also good for your oral health? You see, the chewing motion can produce saliva flow, which can negate bad bacteria and carry food and bacteria away from your mouth. You can also expect increased saliva flow with carrots, celery, and other crisp, fresh vegetables.
Dairy products such as yogurt, whole milk, and cheese can also help your teeth. These foods provide calcium and protein, which strengthen your teeth. They also act as a base, essentially creating an environment where bad bacteria will struggle to grow.
Leafy greens are another food that can benefit your teeth. These are full of vitamins and minerals, which can strengthen the outer layer of your teeth. They also contain folic acid, which has been used to treat gum disease in pregnant women. Almonds also offer a number of the same benefits.

You probably have a long list of things you need to get done before your children go back to school. Sadly, one important thing is often overlooked. While visiting our dentist may not be what your children are hoping to do during their summer, it is something that shouldn’t be overlooked.
You see, tooth decay is fairly common in younger children, especially since there is more sugar being introduced into their diet. These sugary snacks make it easier for bad bacteria to grow in their mouth, which can lead to more cavities. While this may not seem like a problem, did you know that 51 million school hours are missed each year because kids need to visit the dentist?
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to make visiting our dentist a more pleasant experience. For instance, if you have children who nap, try to schedule an appointment that won’t interrupt their sleep. Similarly, remember that a hungry child will probably struggle at our office. Luckily, summer provides a great time for you to find time to visit our team.
It is extremely important to have regular dental checkups to help you keep your little one’s teeth and gums healthy. Furthermore, since oral care can affect the health of their entire body, please remember that scheduling an appointment with our team can actually keep your child’s whole body healthy. In other words, by visiting our dentist, your child be able to keep their teeth, and body, healthy and strong.
