When I had a badly decayed tooth extracted, I got a partial denture to fill in the gap. I didn't mind it at first, because I was just so happy to have my painful tooth out of my mouth. Over time, I began to get tired of taking it out at night. I asked my dentist if I was could get a dental implant, and he said that my gum disease did not make me a good candidate, but a fixed bridge may be a good option for me. I went with his suggestion, and I have no regrets. I love feeling like I have a real tooth again that I don't have to remove at night. I created this blog to remind other people with a missing tooth that they have many replacement options, and if one is not for you, then try another that may be right.
You can do more for your teeth than just regular brushing and flossing. It's easy to do the bare minimum, but why would you when there are a ton of delicious foods you can eat that will actually promote great dental health? Going above and beyond the call of duty to take care of your teeth has never tasted so sweet. Below is a list of delicious foods that you can add to your daily diet that will make your teeth healthier and stronger.
One of the best things you can do for your teeth is to add more vitamin C to your diet. Vitamin C is what actually protects your teeth and mouth from bacteria and plaque buildup, which causes decay and gingivitis. Kiwis are full of vitamin C and will help protect your mouth against bad bacteria and cavities.
You may not know this, but your teeth actually have natural collagen, which keeps your teeth from deteriorating over time. Adding kiwis to your daily diet will help restore the collagen, making your teeth stronger.
Fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber are great for your teeth. Pears are the perfect fibrous food for your teeth because they help to produce saliva, leaving your mouth healthy and clean. Saliva is a natural way for your mouth to protect your teeth against bacteria.
Pears will also help to strengthen the enamel on your teeth and will also make your gums and teeth stronger. Once the enamel on your teeth is damaged, it becomes easier for them to get cavities and gingivitis. Pears will protect your mouth from these things.
One of the most amazing things you can do for your mouth is to eat more yogurt. Yogurt is a natural bacteria killer because of the high acid level that it contains. High acid levels remove harmful bacteria and acids that cling to your teeth, gums and tongue. Adding just eight ounces of yogurt to your daily diet will leave your mouth healthy and less prone to infection and diseases.
There are so many more things that you can do to ensure your mouth is protected throughout the day, and they are a lot more fun than just simply brushing and flossing. To promote great dental health and to protect your teeth and gums from bacteria and diseases, use the foods listed above. Not only will your mouth be cleaner, it will also be stronger and healthier.
