How to Get Stronger Teeth
We all know that you can build stronger muscles by exercising and lifting weights, but did you know you can also build stronger teeth?
Here are three ways to strengthen your teeth at home:
1. Eat a healthy diet — avoid foods high in sugar and acid that can weaken tooth enamel.
2. Make sure your diet contains enough calcium and vitamin D – calcium helps to strengthen your jaw bone and makes your teeth stronger. Calcium will help protect your mouth against gum disease.Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium and can also help to decrease inflammation of gums which is associated with gum disease.
3. Properly brush your teeth two times a day – if you’re unsure if you are properly brushing, ask our staff at your next cleaning.
Eating healthy is easier than you think – here are some foods high in calcium and vitamin D that are healthy for your teeth:
- Dairy foods such as cheese, milk, and yogurt
- Brown Rice
- Forfeited cereals
- Fish Oils
