Dr. Richard G. Goble and our dental team care about you and your oral health, which is why we encourage you to take good care of your smile each and every day. As you may already know, you need to care for your smile by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing your smile once a day, rinsing your mouth daily, and visiting your dentist every six months. Another way you can keep your oral health in top-notch condition is by eating and drinking tooth-healthy products. Those products are:

Calcium-fortified juices and milk: Calcium-fortified beverages and dairy products are extremely beneficial for your smile, especially because they are rich in calcium and vitamin D. These vitamins and minerals help promote healthy bones and teeth, which reduces your chances of tooth loss.

Cheese: Cheese is also full of calcium. This mineral clings to the teeth and creates a shield that protects the enamel from the acid that causes decay and other dental problems. This mineral also helps rebuild your tooth enamel on the spot.

Fruits and vegetables: Crisp fruits and raw veggies can help clean the teeth from plaque and can also help freshen your breath. The antioxidant vitamins and other nutrients also help protect the gums from bacterial infection and cell damage.

Folic acid: Folic acid is a beneficial vitamin that promotes cell growth throughout the entire body. This encourages a healthy mouth. You can find folic acid in leafy green vegetables and brewer’s yeast.

These foods, beverages, vitamins, and minerals can help you and your smile in a myriad of ways. If you consume them on a regular basis, you’ll be on the right track toward the top-notch smile you deserve.
