Your food choices make a big difference on your smile!

Your food choices make a big difference on your smile!

To prevent cavities and maintain good oral health, your diet -- what you eat and how often you eat -- are important factors. Changes in your mouth start the minute you eat certain foods. Bacteria in the mouth convert sugars from the foods you eat to acids, and it's the acids that begin to attack the enamel on teeth, starting the decay process. The more often you eat and snack, the more frequently you are exposing your teeth to the cycle of decay.

Mouth-Healthy Foods and Drinks

The best food choices for the health of your mouth include cheeses, chicken or other meats, nuts, and milk. These foods are thought to protect tooth enamel by providing the calcium and phosphorus needed to remineralize teeth (a natural process by which minerals are redeposited in tooth enamel after being removed by acids).

Other food choices include firm/crunchy fruits (for example, apples and pears) and vegetables. These foods have a high water content, which dilutes the effects of the sugars they contain, and stimulate the flow of saliva (which helps protect against decay by washing away food particles and buffering acid). Acidic foods, such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, and lemons, should be eaten as part of a larger meal to minimize the acid from them.

Poor food choices include candy -- such as lollipops, hard candies, and mints -- cookies, cakes, pies, breads, muffins, potato chips, pretzels, french fries, bananas, raisins, and other dried fruits. These foods contain large amounts of sugar and/or can stick to teeth, providing a fuel source for bacteria. In addition, cough drops should be used only when necessary as they, like sugary candy, contribute to tooth decay because they continuously coat the teeth with sugar.

The best beverage choices include water , milk, and unsweetened tea. Limit your consumption of sugar-containing drinks, including soft drinks, lemonade, and coffee or tea with added sugar. Also, avoid day-long sipping of sugar-containing drinks -- day-long sipping exposes your teeth to constant sugar and, in turn, constant decay-causing acids.

To determine if the sugarless or sugar-free foods you buy contain natural sweeteners, examine the ingredients label. Words that end in '-ose' (like sucrose and fructose) usually indicate the presence of a natural sweetener. On the label, look under sugars or carbohydrates.

Chewing sugarless gum is actually beneficial to your teeth as chewing helps dislodge food that becomes stuck to your teeth and also increases saliva flow to buffer (neutralize) mouth acids. Some gums contain ingredients that can reduce cavities as well as heal areas on the teeth where cavities are beginning. Chewing gum can be a problem, however, if you have jaw pain or other issues with your jaw.

Teeth and Gum Care Tips

These are some basic tips for caring for teeth and gums:
  • Brush your teeth regularly. Brush at least twice a day and preferably after every meal and snack.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Use a mouth rinse daily.
  • Use Teeth Wipes to clean the bacteria away from your teeth 
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings -- typically twice a year.
  • Eat a variety of foods to maintain overall health. Eat fewer foods containing sugars and starches between meals. If you must snack, choose nutritious foods, such as cheese, raw vegetables, plain yogurt, or a firm fruit (such as an apple).

The Luck of the Irish - Find your pot of gold and get a whiter brighter smile!!

Leprechauns (who guard pots of gold, which can be found at the end of the rainbow). Believe it or not, a leprechaun is actually a type of fairy in Irish folklore that usually looks like an old man and who - in contrast to the happy, helping way we usually view fairies - enjoys mischief, misdeeds and trickery. Despite that, if you catch one, you receive 3 wishes and if you follow one, you might just be led to his secret store - the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. With that in mind this month we will be posting links with clues to finding your pot of gold. Who ever can find all the pots of gold will win a free teeth whitening and maintenance kit!!! Good Luck Hunting!!! The clue for the first's right in front of you :)

From now until March 17th you can win a free teeth whitening by liking us on FB and finding the pots of gold.  Clues will be listed and there will be 10 pots to find.  Good Luck
