Are you troubled by cavities and tooth decay? Cavities are able to cause health problems, pain, and tooth sensitivity.
In the case that you are concerned about tooth decay and want to do more than your common oral health routine, including brushing, flossing, and dental visits, you might need to modify your nutritional choices.
By simply adding these items to your diet, you may increase your chances of being cavity free.
1) Choose sugar-free snacks
If you are eating sweets, especially candy, make sure it includes xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar alternative that actually defends against cavities developing.
2) Chew sugar-free chewing gum
Just like some sugar-free candy, some sugar-free gum also contains xylitol. Whenever you are looking for gum to buy, you should look specifically for a product which contains xylitol.
3) Eat your fruits and vegetables
Quite a few fruits and veggies are wonderful for your oral and overall health. Pineapples, celery, and pears are particularly good for your oral health.
4) Consume more dairy products
There is a protein in dairy products called “casein” that is incredibly beneficial to your oral health. Casein is found in yogurt, cheese, and more.
5) Drink wine and eat raisins
There are studies showing that there is a chemical component in wine and raisins that fights the bacteria that create cavities.
