Proper nutrition can benefit you in many ways: increased energy, improved immunity, glowing skin, mental clarity, and a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. At Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall, we ask: how often do you examine how your diet impacts your dental health?
Your diet can influence your risk of cavities, enamel health, and gum condition. Healthy foods provide an environment that can prohibit inflammation and infection. Vegetables, fruits, legumes, and nuts are the prime choices for oral health. Calcium-fortified beverages, milk, and other dairy products provide vitamins, minerals, and calcium that helps with keeping teeth, bones, and gums healthy. Eating crispy fruits and vegetables, such as apples and celery, will help clean your teeth and gums.
A healthy diet contains all the vital vitamins and minerals, and the most important mineral for teeth is fluoride – especially for children. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in, therefore adequate fluoride is critical.
