Take Care Of Your Teeth to Have a Healthy Smile

Have you heard: “Smile and the world will smile with you?” It is true! Test it out for yourself next time you’re at a store by smiling at the person in the opposite, and you will see a smile right back.

We all know that foods and drinks play important roles in our lives. To have a healthy mouth, we must avoid sugary drinks, sugared gum, and sticky candy from damaging our teeth.

Step One

The first thing people notice is our teeth when we smile. To keep teeth health, eat hard fruits and vegetables such as apples and carrots. These fruits and vegetables act as natural tooth-scrubbers, and actually scraping away plaque and debris.

Step Two

Consume dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese can raise the mouth’s pH level, resulting in neutralize cavity-causing acid.

If you are lactose intolerant, find substitute products.

Step Three

Eat foods that are high in vitamin C since they promote healthy gums by preventing gingivitis, which is the first sign of gum disease. Best sources for vitamin C are: kiwi, strawberries, peppers, and citrus fruits.

Step Four

Add chocolate and nuts to your daily snack! These can be good for you since both contain oils that decrease the activity of bacteria in the mouth!
