How Produce Can Improve Your Overall Oral Health

Posted on 4/20/2019 by Michael Bleyzer, DDS
How Produce Can Improve Your Overall Oral HealthThere are many things you should and should not eat. Not only for great oral health, but also for your overall health. It is important to have a well-balanced diet, but also that you take care when it comes to what you eat for your oral health. Your teeth can thrive with the right foods. Produce is one of those foods that not only help your body and mind, but your teeth, as well.

The Benefits of Produce for Oral Health

Bacteria in the mouth thrives off of sugar. This means that those sugary processed foods are causing more harm than good. Produce does not have this sugary substance which can cause further issues. This is something to think about when choosing a diet plan that is not only good for your health, but your teeth. Anything that is not natural and processed can cause issues.

Getting enough vitamins and minerals is especially important when it comes to teeth health. This is why produce is one of the best ways to go when you're considering healthier teeth. Produce can help to scrub away any bacteria and build up that is on the outside of the teeth and does not have any sugars that can sit on the outside of the teeth and cause a film over them.

Fruits have natural sugars in them which are better than the sugars found in the processed food and snacks but can also be harmful to the teeth if regular dental hygiene is not kept up on. Cleanings every six months and brushing and flossing every day is highly recommended regardless of the diet.
