Does Your Diet Affect Your Smile? Miami Beach Dentist Dr. Mereos Provides Insight Into Your Dental Health
Did you know that what you eat can affect your smile? We all know, a balanced, nutritious diet is essential to healthy living. We also know that poor nutrition can lead to all kinds of health issue, but did you know that poor nutrition can lead to oral health problems such as gum disease and cavities. In fact, studies show that people who have lost teeth or wear dentures don’t eat as many fruits or vegetables and tend to have less nutritious diets overall.
Most nutrients come into your body in one way. Your mouth! Your mouth is your body’s initial point of contact with the nutrients you consume. So naturally, what you put in your mouth impacts not only your general health but also the health of your teeth and gums. Did you know that certain foods can put you at risk for cavities and other oral health problems? Below are some nutrition tips that will help you achieve a healthier smile. Remember: If your nutrition is poor, the first signs often show up in your oral health.
Eating a balanced diet can make a difference in your oral health. A balanced diet should include:
Fruits and vegetables. Combined these should be half of what you eat every day.
Grains. Make sure at least half of the grains you eat are whole grains, such as oatmeal, whole wheat bread and brown rice.
Dairy. Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy foods.
Lean proteins. Make lean protein choices, such as lean beef, skinless poultry and fish. Try and vary your protein choices to include eggs, beans, peas and legumes, too.
Also remember to drink plenty of water and avoid sugary, acidic drinks.
