The best 10 nutrition strategies ideal for healthy teeth

‘Smile’ - the word is as beautiful as when someone gives a refreshing smile. A white tooth, a beautiful face... ah! It is the most beautiful scenario in the world. 

But the latest data is not as refreshing as the smile on beautiful teeth. 

What does the latest data say?

  1. About 4 billion or nearly 44% of people around the world are affected by oral diseases, the World Dental Federation report says. 

  1. According to a WHO or World Health Organization report, in some Asian countries, oral cancer has spread so vastly that it is now counted in the top 3 cancer diseases.
“A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart.”-

What are the reasons beyond these dental problems?

Oral diseases can be caused by several factors. 

  • Processed food, snacks, and soft drinks are considered unhealthy. These foods have a high level of sugar. The result is not only bad teeth but a super-size physique too.

  • Both alcohol and tobacco have a similarly bad effect on you. Alcohol can cause tooth decay. Tobacco can harm your gum

What are the diseases occurring due to dental problems?

  1. The cavity has turned into a major dental problem now. It means you have a hole in the tooth’s enamel. An untreated cavity can cause an ulcer. So, take precautions beforehand to prevent these types of problems.

  1. Periodontal disease is the next major teeth problem the world is suffering from. It is a type of gum disease from which taking precautions is very necessary.   

  1. The next major dental disease is nutrition deficiency. 12 kinds of nutrients are necessary for having strong teeth. 

These are Protein, Calcium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Antioxidants, Folate, Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, B Vitamins and Omega 3 fats.   

You need all these 12 nutrients for healthy teeth and gum. Any shortage of these nutrients will affect your mouth tissue first. So, it is good for you to make nutritional strategies from beforehand.  
Take a look at 10 dental diets you must adapt to keep your teeth healthy

  1. You should eat the whole grain more to have healthy teeth. The whole grain will help you to build a strong gum. The more saliva (the liquid substance in the mouth) you can produce, the better for your teeth. Start eating oatmeal and whole-wheat bread more.

  1. Probiotics can protect you from periodontal disease (gum disease). You can get the probiotics nutrients from natural yogurt and health drinks.  

  1. Are you addicted to tea? Now make a habit of drinking green tea regularly. Green tea has polyphenols that help to lessen bacteria and other toxic products in the mouth. Green tea is rich in fluoride that will help you to strengthen your teeth.

  1. Garlic and ginger can restrain bacteria to cause periodontal disease. So, you can use it in your food. 

  1. Ginseng is a herb that is very good for getting healthy teeth. Use Ginseng to prevent diseases that are formed by bacteria.   

  1. Start eating anthocyanin-enriched fruits like cranberries, raspberries, blueberries and red cabbage. It will prevent the bacteria from attaching to your teeth. Some bacteria form colonization in the teeth by forming biofilms. For example, dental plaque is formed on the surface of the teeth. 

  1. Soy made products like soybeans are popular amongst vegans. You should try it too as it is beneficial for gum tissues. People who take soy enriched diets generally have fewer issues with periodontal disease.  

  1. Fluoride is an essential mineral to make your teeth strong and durable. Your teeth are going to be weak if they lack calcium. You will face a major problem while you will chew or eat your food. Fluoride can help to rebuild your teeth enamel. Black tea and fruit juice that originates from grapes are a great source of fluoride

  1. Chewing gum, which is made from Pine Bark, is good for healthy teeth. The pine bark chewing gum has Pycnogenol. It can reduce your plaque (bacteria created substance) as well as stop bleeding from the gums.

  1. Make a habit of drinking normal water instead of going for carbonated drinks. Carbonated soft drinks are very popular among kids as well as adults. It has a harmful side. The soft drinks are responsible for forming cavity and gingivitis in teeth. You will suffer from gum inflammation. It is a symptom of gingivitis. So, it is better to make a habit of drinking normal water rather than drinking carbonated sodas.      

                                         That’s all friends.
However, the article will remain incomplete if we do not discuss child and childcare. Doctors say the parents should take their child to a dentist at the age of 6 months. Because problems like cavities, early tooth loss, and tooth decay are affecting the kids more now. 

My suggestion is to never be late if you have a kid. Google where you can find the best child health care treatments around you.
