Eating Habits For Good Teeth

Healthy eating together with good oral hygiene will result in healthy mouths.

dental hygiene and diet

A healthy and balanced diet will contain fresh ingredients, whether ready made or home cooked; this can help us to monitor the sugar level in our foods. Drinking plenty of water is recommended. If you drink fruit juice it should be diluted with water at a 1:3 ratio (1 part juice 3 parts water). Similarly fruit squash should be heavily diluted with water and should be limited to meal times. Snacking should also be limited or completely avoided if possible.

Reading product labels carefully before purchase is an important step in the prevention of tooth decay for the entire family. Eating a healthy and balanced diet will ensure the healthy development and maintenance of teeth. The essential nutrients for tooth development and maintenance include vitamins A, C, and D, as well as calcium, phosphorus, and fluoride.

Your Dental Hygienist can provide tailored diet advice, diet assessments and advice you of preventive measures that will help you develop and maintain a healthy smile.
