Are you eating the right foods to help keep your teeth strong and healthy throughout your lifetime? If not, that’s OK because we can help you! Your oral health is essential and should be taken care of, which includes eating the healthy foods you need for your smile to thrive and shine.

Our dentist, Dr. Mehrdad Safavian, encourages you to take care of your teeth and gums. That is why our team at Capitol Square Dental in Columbus, Ohio, is sharing a list of healthy treats for your teeth.

Here is a list of healthy foods you can enjoy your oral health:

– Crunchy foods like pears, apples, and vegetables have high water content, which dilutes the sugars they hold and produce saliva production.
– Cheeses, nuts, chicken, and milk all defend your tooth enamel by providing calcium and phosphorus which helps remineralize your teeth and keep your tooth enamel healthy.
– Water is a life-saving element needed to survive but can flush away any bacteria and food particles in your mouth and keep your mouth hydrated.
– Citrus fruits, tomatoes, and lemons are also very healthy for your oral health but should be taken as part of a much larger meal to minimize the acids they contain.

As you can see, there is many choices you can choose from when it comes to the health of your smile. If you have questions about your oral health, or it’s time for a checkup with your dentist, please call us today at 614-763-6460 to make an appointment. Our friendly dental team is eager to welcome you.
