6 Easy Ways To Eat Like A Dentist In Alexandria

6 Easy Ways To Eat Like A Dentist In Alexandria

There is nothing that influences your smile as much as your eating habits. Develop good eating habits and your Mt. Vernon dentist will smile down on you too. Patients in Alexandria, Alexandria, and Mt. Vernon would do well to follow the example of a dentist in what and how they eat.

1. Rinse after eating
Rinse your mouth with a drink of water or brush your teeth after a meal. Alexandria folks who snack all day long prolong tooth exposure to sugars and food debris. Planned meals with brushing in between keeps your oral health on top.

2. Avoid sugary gum

Sugar free gum doesn’t leave sugar to break down on your teeth and spoil your hard earned healthy gums. If you are one of the many Mt. Vernon gum chewers, do your teeth a favor and go sugarless.

3. Avoid sticky foods
Sticky foods have a habit of clinging to your teeth with stronger chances for decay. Toffee, gummy candy, fruit snacks, even dried fruit can be problematic for Alexandria smiles. Brushing doesn’t always remove the obstinate particles.

4. Consume nutritious foods
A balanced diet with a variety of vitamins and minerals can keep the immune system and able to fight infection.

5. Consume cheese
Cheese contains calcium and protects from acid that breaks down tooth enamel. (It’s vital not to go overboard as cheese is high in fat.)

6. Avoid acidic foods
Acid will eat away enamel over time: lemons, red wine, soda pop. Minimize direct, constant, consistent exposure. All things in moderation.

If you have concerns about enamel damage that’s already taken place on your teeth, need help with crooked, chipped or missing teeth, or just need to get in for a check up, call Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria today.
