Dentist Laredo 5 Fortifying Foods for your Teeth

Dentist Laredo Advises Patients to Consume More of the Following:

Your dentist Laredo recommends consuming as much of certain foods and beverages as possible. Just as some things are bad for your teeth, there are a few things that are extremely beneficial to your teeth. Certain foods and beverages not only improve your mouth health, but your overall health as well!


1. Milk:


Milk is a great source of calcium and your dentist Laredo recommends drinking a cup of milk every day. Calcium is great because not only does it help to strengthen your bones, it can help to strengthen your teeth and repair enamel as well!


2. Wild Salmon:


Your dentist Laredo recommends eating as much wild salmon or Atlantic mackerel as possible. Both of these types of fish are loaded with vitamin D, and vitamin D aids the body in absorbing calcium. Vitamin D can help you benefit even more from foods containing calcium.


3. Oranges:


Oranges and other citrus foods are great for you because they are high in vitamin C. However, your dentist Laredo warns that too many citrus foods can be bad for your teeth because they are highly acidic.


Oranges and other citrus fruits that contain vitamin C help by strengthening blood vessels and the connective tissue that holds your teeth into your jaw. Vitamin C can also help to prevent inflammation, and therefore, it can hinder and possible prevent periodontitis.

4. Strawberries:


Just like other citrus fruits, your dentist Laredo recommends snacking on strawberries as well. Strawberries are another great source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is required for the production of collagen, a protein that helps to maintain the gums.  


5. Water:


Water is beneficial for your overall health as well as the health of your teeth. Drinking plenty of water can help to wash some of the bacteria and food particles out of your mouth. It can also aid in preventing dental decay and periodontal disease.


Aside from these things, your dentist Laredo reminds you that you should be brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Also, be sure to keep up with your dental checkups. For more information or schedule an appointment contact Dr. Zuniga at (956) 717-8899.
