Foods to Eat to Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Proper nutrition and diet programs affect our health. For dental concerns, there are certain foods to eat to keep your teeth healthy.Foods to Eat to Keep Your Teeth Healthy Oral checks must also be done regularly to ensure you get healthy teeth, gums, and mouth for healthy body functions.

Knowing the Risks
It is best to let you know the risks of ignoring your teeth’s health and nutritional requirements so you will understand better how important to take care of your teeth through the foods you eat and other habits you need to change.

Cavities
These are the result of plaque build-up. Cavities appear as holes in the teeth. As they grow bigger and touch some nerves, you feel pain. A tooth abscess comes from an untreated cavity so you should hurry up for treatment when you spot a cavity in your teeth.

Periodontal Disease
This is another name for gum disease. It starts as gingivitis or gum problem in its early stage. Gingivitis can be cured to stop further issues but if not taken seriously, it can lead to the formation of little spaces between the teeth and gums that is known as “pockets.” These pockets are then colonized by bacteria that result to periodontitis.
The symptoms include tender, swollen or discoloured gums. Receding and bleeding gums, loose tooth, bad breath, and sensational changes when eating. Root surface debridement is the procedure used for treating this disease.

Understanding Dietary Essentials
Here are the foods that you need in optimizing oral health at its best potentials.

Calcium and Phosphorus
Milk, cheeses, chicken or other meats, and nuts are rich in phosphorus and calcium that are effective to remineralize the teeth after damaged by acids.

High Water Content
This include firm or crunchy fruits like pears, apples and even vegetables. The high water content in these fruits and vegetables stimulate salivary flow, washing the acid away, and dilutes sugary effects. Tomatoes, lemons, citrus and other acidic foods must be taken as part of larger meals to minimize acidic reactions.

Water
This universal solvent is the best beverage for all body types and ages. Sugar-containing drinks must be limited to avoid decay-causing acids.

Cranberries
These fruits along with blueberries, eggplant, red cabbage, raspberries and black rice are rich in anthocyanins that prevent pathogenic attachment the teeth and other host tissues.

Probiotics
These help destroy plaque and gingivitis making you less prone to periodontal diseases.
Soy, green tea, whole foods, Echinacea, ginseng, ginger, garlic, and other foods rich in zinc, irons, vitamins C, A, D, B, folate, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants in addition to calcium and phosphorus helps you get complete oral health in action.

What Is Plaque And Why Is It Bad?

Plaque is the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on your teeth.1001405_651192224891975_965681963_n

Plaque that is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.

If your gums bleed when you brush, that’s your body’s way of telling you that you have plaque trapped under the gum line. Bacteria found in plaque create toxic chemicals that irritate the gums and can eventually lead to gum disease.

Dr. Korenman and his team are dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of gum disease and they check all their patients for it.

Recent research suggests that gum disease is linked to other health problems including heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s and some pregnancy complications.

Here are 3 realities of gum disease:

  1. Gum (Periodontal) Disease is an ongoing bacterial infection deep in the gums and bone around your teeth.
  2. 80% of people have Gum Disease and DO NOT KNOW IT! There is usually no pain involved for people until extremely late in the degeneration. Many gum problems will go unnoticed until they are diagnosed by a dentist.
  3. Gum Disease has been shown to increase the risk of Heart Disease, Heart Attack and Stroke.

Here at Loveable Smiles, we check our patients for Gum Disease on a regular basis. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.

We urge you to call Loveable Smiles at 972-231-0585.

I Have A Cavity, But Why Doesn’t My Tooth Hurt?

Most dental problems don’t have any symptoms until they reach more advanced stages.i gotta filling

This is true for cavities, Oral Cancer and even gum disease. In fact 80% of all patients have gum disease and don’t even know it.

Teeth are one part of the body that cannot heal themselves.

We often say, here at Loveable Smiles in Richardson that “Neglect is the most expensive thing in dentistry.”

Additionally, when you have any issues within your teeth and gums, it can affect your entire body.

This is why it is imperative to visit Dr. Korenman on a regular basis.

Here are the top 4 ways your hygiene appointment is a real medical appointment:

  1. We check your blood pressure. Evidence links Gum Disease and heart health. Check out the WebMD article on this important topic.
  2. We evaluate your gum tissue for gum disease.
  3. You will be screened for Oral Cancer.
  4. We check your biting, chewing and swallowing patterns.  Improperly aligned teeth can cause unnecessary wear and tear on your teeth.

Early detection of minor issues can be corrected before they become bigger, more painful and more expensive issues later.

Call Loveable Smiles today!  972-231-0585 to schedule your appointment.
