When it comes to having healthy teeth and gums, what you eat plays an important part. We sharing a fun throwback video by the American Dental Association (ADA) that talks a bit about how your food choices influence your smile. We’d also like to share a few of the best nutrients for your child’s oral health: 

  • Fiber – Crunchy fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber like apples and celery can help keep teeth clean and free of plaque.
  • Calcium – Foods with calcium, like milk, cheese, and yogurt, strengthen your child’s teeth and even plays a part in preventing gum disease.
  • Lean Protein – Foods like eggs, fish, and other lean meats can strengthen bone and teeth as well.

This only scratches the surface on which nutrients are good for your child’s smile. If you want extra help, at your next appointment, we can make recommendations based on what is most needed for your child’s teeth and gums.
