How to Maintain a Bright and Cavity-Free Smile

Enjoying a cavity-free mouth is much simpler than you may think. As we all know, there is a clear link between the types of foods and drinks that we consume and the number of cavities which might develop.

This is why the relationship between nutrition and oral health cannot be overstated. Let’s look at five points to keep in mind.

Drinking plenty of water will help to remove food particles from between your teeth. It is also wise to regularly consume fruits, vegetables and dairy products. These foods contain vital tooth-friendly nutrients.

However, dried fruits can stick to the teeth and juices are loaded with sugar; both should be sparingly consumed.

We should also point out that constant snacking increases the risk of developing cavities; try to eat at certain times throughout the day. Finally, it is better to choose chocolate during the holiday season as opposed to sticky sweets.

Key takeaways:

Drink plenty of water to wash away bacteria and avoid cavities.
Avoid sticky foods that may become lodged between the teeth.
Eat plenty of dairy foods.
Embracing the proper diet and eating habits will reduce your chances of developing cavities.
