Healthy Eating for a Healthy Smile

Published on January 13, 2017 by

When it comes to obtaining a beautiful, healthy smile, your efforts shouldn’t only be dedicated to brushing and flossing every day. While committing to these practices is very important, great oral health doesn’t simply boil down to remembering to brush your teeth daily. The food you eat and how much of it you eat are important as well.

If you’re consuming a lot of foods that are filled with sugar, it will be much harder to maintain healthy teeth, because sugary foods contribute to tooth decay. By eating healthier foods, you won’t only improve your oral healthy, you’ll also improve your physical health overall.

You can improve your oral health and get a healthy smile by eating:

• Cheese
• Apples
• Carrots
• Almonds
• Leafy Greens
