Treat Your Smile To A Healthy Diet

experienced family dentist Alexandria

This message from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria is about proper nutrition and dental health.

Your diet can affect your risk of cavities, enamel health, and gum condition. Healthy foods provide an environment that can prohibit inflammation and infection. Vegetables, fruits, legumes, and nuts are the ideal choices for oral health. Calcium-fortified beverages, milk, and other dairy products provide vitamins, minerals, and calcium that assists in keeping teeth, bones, and gums healthy. Eating crispy fruits and vegetables, such as apples and celery, will help clean your teeth and gums.

A healthy diet contains all the critical vitamins and minerals, and the most important mineral for teeth is fluoride – especially for little ones. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in, therefore adequate fluoride is critical.

Be sure to brush after each meal and before bed. In addition, remember to floss or use a water irrigating method to dislodge food particles trapped in spaces. By eating well, brushing properly, flossing regularly, and avoiding foods that stick to your teeth, you can have a beautiful smile for life. (And, hopefully, the physical vitality to complement that nice smile and the energy to enjoy both.)

At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria we offer complete family dentistry services. People also come to our practice for clear braces from Invisalign. Call to schedule an appointment today!
