You take great care of your teeth by brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist as scheduled. But are you doing everything you can? Just like carrots are good for our eyes and water for our skin, specific foods deliver health benefits to our mouths. If you’re already being diligent with your oral hygiene routine, then you’ll also want to take great care of what the best foods for your teeth. Let’s explore the best foods for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

Calcium and Phosphorus Sources

Our teeth are composed of minerals. These minerals are lost and replenished during the remineralization process which naturally occurs in our teeth. However, when the acidity level is high, minerals are lost and not naturally replenished. This can cause the teeth’s outermost layer, the enamel, to corrode. Calcium is crucial as it helps keep the bones healthy and strong. It works better, though, when combined with phosphorus. They help replenish lost minerals on the teeth. Here are food choices that are great sources of calcium.

Crunchy, Water-Rich Food

Vitamin D Sources

Vitamin D is good for your overall health as it helps with optimum calcium absorption.

As you plan your meals, don’t forget to incorporate the best foods for your teeth and that will benefit your body and oral health.
