Do you ever think about what else you can do to keep your smile in excellent condition? If so, you are not alone. With health becoming a higher priority in our nation, many people are now turning more to cosmetic dentistry and other options to keep their oral health in check.

However, did you know that there are specific foods you can put in your diet to help you always keep your teeth healthy and strong? Our team here at Midtown Dental has provided you with a list of 3 items to always keep in your diet. These items are:

1. Water is your best friend. Drinking water is not only essential to live, but also essential to oral health. Water washes food particles away along with bad bacteria. Water also keeps conditions like halitosis and dry mouth at bay.

2. Fruits and vegetables are essential. Everyone knows fruits and veggies help your entire body. Yet, because they are low in sugars and high in fibers they balance out to help clean your teeth and promote saliva production to wash away harmful food particles and acids.

3. Nuts contain protein and are low in carbohydrates. The proteins and minerals found in nuts do not add risk to cavities in your smile. That is because of the acid-producing bacteria from the carbs found within the nuts making them a healthy treat for your teeth.

As you can see, there are other things you can do to keep your smile in bright and beautiful shape. If you still have questions about your smile here at in Raleigh, North Carolina, please call us at 919-847-8074 to make an appointment. We are always happy to take your call.
