5 Summer Foods That Are Good for Your Teeth

The summer months come with their own share of beauty. Who does not wait for the warm summer nights paired with the incessant chirping of crickets and the taste and smell of barbecued food. But have you ever given a thought about what happens to your oral health after you have experienced a gala fest!

A beautiful smile happens to be the first thing that people notice in you. After all, it is the language that everyone understands.  The stained and yellowed teeth can be a complete put down and the problem is that maintaining the pearly whites happens to be a challenge even after regular brushing and flossing.

The bacteria in the mouth and the food that you eat can stain the teeth in more ways than one. The excessive intake of candy, food, cakes and soft-aerated drinks can lead to the erosion of the delicate teeth enamel.

But worry not. Apart from the awesome smells, sounds and tastes of the summer there are also some delicious foods that will not only stimulate your taste buds but will also help to strengthen your teeth. Just read on.

Cheese:

A slice of cheese can add taste to even an otherwise bland burger. A cheese platter is something that most of us enjoy and crave for. The dairy products like cheese, yogurt and milk are high in phosphorus and calcium and low in sugar. As a result of that, the enamel gets strengthened because of cheese. In fact, having more dairy products can decrease the chance for developing the gum disease.

Celery:

Because of the fibrous nature, most fresh and raw vegetables are great for your health. This is because most of them require good amount of chewing that produces optimum amount of saliva. Celery happens to be an oral-friendly product as it helps to clean the tooth and breaks down the food for digestion. The reason why celery is really good is because it breaks down into the fibrous strands that naturally clean the tooth at the time of chewing. You should eat celery in the raw state for the best results. You can include celery in the crisp form and it can be served as the perfect side dish for your patio dinner.

Go Seedless:

You can prevent the seeds from getting stuck in your guests’ teeth by opting for the seedless foods. You should avoid the poppy seeds and sesame in the hamburger buns and hot dogs. Instead of kiwi, raspberries and blackberries you should use crunchy foods in your salad like seedless watermelons.

Raw Onion:

Onions are known for giving bad breath. You may be thinking that why it is suggested here. Well when a toothbrush is near you do not have to give any second thought about onion consumption as onions eliminate bacteria from the mouth that can trigger gum disease and cavities. So, it is advisable that you include onions in your burger.

Infused Waters:

Sport drinks and soda are some of the worst drinks that can wreak havoc on your oral health. They are full of sugar and eat away the teeth. Water, on the other hand, happens to be a healthy alternative so that you can twist it up with any fruit that you want. The infused waters are super-hydrating and low in sugar. That is why you can opt for them to keep yourself hydrated and at the same time savor the taste of the infused fruits.

The above are some of the foods that help to nourish and strengthen your oral health. These are suggested by the efficient and experienced cosmetic dentist in Delhi who have been in the industry since many years now and know exactly what works and who doesn’t for the upkeep of your oral health.
