What to Eat to Avoid Cavities

what to eat to avoid cavitiesDid you know that a healthy diet can help prevent cavities and gum disease? While good dental hygiene and regular dental visits with our dentist in Thousand Oaks can form the backbone of your dental health regimen, a balanced diet helps build your teeth from the inside. Not only does it provide your teeth and gums with the nutrients they need but it also reduces the risk of dental diseases by helping protect teeth from bacterial assaults.

1. Calcium
Teeth are a type of bone, and just like bone, they need calcium. While getting plenty of calcium is most important when teeth are still growing and developing, you still need to get calcium even long after your adult teeth have erupted in order to keep them strong. Get your daily dose in fortified juices, milk, fortified milk substitutes, cheeses, and yogurt. Look for foods that are also fortified with vitamin D which is essential for proper calcium absorption.

2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a powerful nutrient that helps build and strengthen connective tissues such as your gums. Get more vitamin C in your diet through citrus fruits and juices, bell peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, papaya, strawberries, and dark green leafy vegetables.

3. Tap water
Bottled water is fast and convenient, but if it is all you drink, you may be missing out on one of the most tooth-friendly minerals: fluoride. Fluoride hardens dental enamel and interferes with the reproductive cycles of oral bacteria, so fill your glass and drink up.
