Importance of Fruits and Vegetables for Healthy Teeth

Importance of Fruits and Vegetables for Healthy TeethMany individuals keep a careful eye on their diet for their own energy levels, weight, skin complexion, or countless other reasons.  What some may not realize is just how dramatically one’s diet will affect the state of their oral health.  Along with regular trips to our Los Angeles dentist and great dental hygiene habits, a well-balanced diet is exactly what is needed to have a bright and healthy smile.

One of the most important parts of a healthy and well-balanced diet is eating fruits and vegetables every single day.  Many of these fruits and vegetables can provide some of the nutrients that are necessary for the healthy development of one’s teeth and gums.  Vitamins A, C, and D all play a role in keeping the enamel of the teeth as strong as possible and reducing the risk of developing issues such as bleeding or swollen gums.

In addition to the vitamins and nutrients that vegetables provide, they can also be used to replace sugary and tooth-staining foods.  Other than various citrus fruits and berries, almost all fruits and vegetables will have very little negative impact when they come into direct contact with the teeth and gums.  This means individuals will reduce the chance that they will require the services of our Los Angeles restorative dentistry specialist throughout their lifetime due to chips, fractures, and tooth decay.
