Is regular teeth brushing enough to ensure healthy teeth and gums or is something more needed?
The answer to the first part of the question is NO and the second is YES. First, having healthy teeth and gums requires a little more effort than simply gliding a toothbrush across your teeth once or twice a day. Second, we need to put a bit more energy into preserving our Brite smiles.
Even if we start out with healthy gums and teeth, as we age, things change. Aging and exposure to the elements as well as teeth-staining foods causes teeth to yellow. Gums recede over time for a few reasons.
Your parents might have told you to drink milk for strong teeth and bones. They were right. Teeth and gums are comprised of calcium.
This doesn’t mean you have to have a big glass of milk with every meal. Although milk is high in calcium, there are a lot of other foods you can choose from in order to get enough calcium to strengthen your teeth.
For instance, soybeans have a nice supply of calcium. Edamame, soy milk, yogurt and other soy based products will provide nutrients your body needs; one of those things being healthy teeth and gums.
Another benefit to milk is Vitamin D which helps us absorb the calcium in our body. This is one more benefit of getting outdoors and exercising. We get most of our Vitamin D from the sun’s rays, but also some from milk that has been fortified.
But Vitamin D isn’t the only vitamin that contributes to dental health. If you are deficient in vitamin C this can cause severe dental problems—including loose teeth and bleeding gums. Eat oranges, or if you prefer, grapefruit to boost your body’s ability to fight against unhealthy teeth and gums, as well as eat away at plaque.
With regular brushing and eating nutrient-rich foods, your teeth have a better chance at staying strong and healthy.
