Feed Your Smile with Teeth-Friendly Foods

dca-blog_foods-help-brush-teeth

Everybody craves a beautiful smile and minty-fresh breath.  Plaque and tartar buildup seek to destroy that goal. Harmful bacteria in your mouth feed off food debris to produce acids that erode tooth enamel, cause bad breath, and ultimately destroy your dental health. Frequent brushing and flossing is the first line of defense against nasty plaque and tartar buildup, but your food choices have an equally dramatic impact on your dental care. Research shows that certain foods can actually help slow the growth of plaque buildup and promote oral health.  Use this list to design a balanced diet for optimal dental care and oral health.

These four foods and beverages can help to make visits to an affordable dentist in Tampa less costly, since healthy teeth and gums save you from extensive and expensive dental work.

Tea

Black and green teas contain plant compounds called polyphenols that slow the growth of bacteria associated with cavities and gum disease. According to research at the University of Illinois at Chicago, subjects who rinsed their mouths with black tea for one minute, 10 times a day, had less plaque buildup on their teeth than people who rinsed their mouths with water. The amount and stickiness of the plaque was also reduced in these subjects. Researchers believe the tea inhibited the bacteria’s ability to clump together, limiting development of plaque and acids. Black tea was also found, in a 2010 study, to be effective against halitosis, the technical term for bad breath. The polyphenols suppress the production of smelly compounds in the mouth.

Cheese

Cheese works in two ways to promote dental health: it is believe to help neutralize plaque acid and also increase saliva production to help wash away harmful bacteria. One study published in the journal, General Dentistry, reported that adolescents who ate cheddar cheese had lower acid levels in their mouths compared to those who drank a glass of milk or ate sugar-free yogurt.

Crunchy Foods

Chewing is linked to lower levels of plaque. Crunching on healthy fruits and vegetables, like carrots and apples, promotes saliva production and keeps bacteria from settling on your teeth.

Mineral-Rich Foods

The American Dental Association recommends mineral-rich foods to strengthen the tooth enamel. Foods rich in calcium and phosphorous have been shown to contribute mineral deposits to acid-induced lesions on the teeth, reversing the development of a cavity. Foods containing calcium, like almonds, cheese, and leafy greens; and foods high in phosphorous, such as meat, eggs, and fish are worthy choices for strong teeth.
