Dental Health And Nutrition
How should we eat for our dental health?
Foodstuffs that are considered harmful for dental health are sugary and acidic foods and substances that stick to the teeth and cannot be easily cleaned.
Recommended diet for dental health:
Sugary, sticky or acidic foods should be consumed within 3 main meals.
Between meals, foods such as apples and carrots that will clean hard teeth and massage the gums should be eaten.
If it is not possible to brush your teeth after eating sticky sugary food, you should rinse your mouth with water or drink a glass of water.
What are the foodstuffs that we can consider as dental friendly?
Protein is one of the foods that are considered tooth-friendly.
These substances, which form the basic building blocks of our body, are foods that must be consumed both during the development of teeth and after the eruption of teeth, in terms of dental health.
In addition to its high protein content, cheese is highly recommended especially after consumption of sugary foods due to its importance in dental health.
Unrefined cereals (wholegrain brown bread instead of white flour bread) should be preferred for dental health.
In addition, parsley and fish are often recommended because of the fluorine they contain.
