To help you with your diet choices, our team here at Logan Family Dental in Logan, Ohio, is happy to talk with you about the healthy foods for your teeth.
The healthiest foods for your smile start with chicken and other meats, green spinach, green vegetables, cheese, nuts, and milk. These foods are important because they protect your tooth enamel and are high in calcium, which will keep your teeth in excellent health. Having healthy foods in your diet is also great for your body’s overall health physically and mentally.
Apples and pears are also excellent choices when it comes to your diet. These foods have high water content, which dilutes the sugars in these foods while also increasing saliva production in your mouth. They help fight against tooth decay and keep food particles from settling between your teeth and along your gumline.
