Good Foods for Your Oral Health

good foods for your oral healthWhat you eat can make a big difference in your tooth and gum health. A balanced diet should contain the vitamins and minerals your teeth and gums need to function properly and stay healthy. A diet high in processed foods, simple carbohydrates, sugary treats, and sweet drinks can have the opposite effect.

Vegetables and fruits can be some of the best foods for your teeth. Leafy green vegetables are rich in vitamins A and B, which help prevent gum disease, while citrus fruits, berries, and some vegetables contain vitamin C, which also helps keep your gums healthy. Whole grains are a good source of vitamin B, which reduces the risk of ulcers in your mouth and dry lips. Dairy products and dark green leafy vegetables are great ways to keep your bones healthy, but the calcium they contain is also good for your teeth. Cheese, milk, and yogurt are all excellent choices. When possible, choose vitamin D-enriched products, which can help your body absorb the calcium it needs. Poultry, fish, meat, and eggs contain protein, magnesium, and zinc, which are all components of healthy gum tissue. Tooth-healthy minerals can be found in raisins, beans, molasses, nuts, soybeans, and sunflower seeds.

Some foods you need to avoid include candy, sodas, energy drinks, and excessive juice, all of which tend to contain high levels of sugar or acid, which can erode your teeth and leave your gums irritated.
