You know that when you hear about protecting your smile health, one of the things you need is to maintain strong teeth! This sounds good, of course, but unlike working out your muscles with exercise or promoting mental agility with challenging puzzles, you might not really know how to encourage strong teeth. Not to worry! This can certainly seem confusing at first but with a little extra information from our Virginia Beach, VA team, you’ll know just what to do. Even better: It’s all very easy!
Get Your Daily Calcium
Our team wants you to be sure that you’re getting enough calcium in your diet. If not, you’re leaving your smile susceptible to becoming weak as your teeth aren’t receiving sufficient nutrition to stay strong! You already know this mineral as something that helps you keep your body’s skeletal system nice and strong. You need it for teeth, too. Some examples of the types of calcium-rich foods to include in your diet to protect your smile health include almonds, kale, broccoli, cheese, yogurt, and milk. Speak with our team to learn more!
Make Sure To Use Fluoride
Yes, fluoride is still just as important when you’re an adult as it is when you’re a child. Why? Well, because it truly helps keep your teeth strong. In the case of this mineral, it’s contributing on a daily basis (assuming you’re using fluoride toothpaste like we recommend) to keep your tooth’s outer protective layer (enamel) hard and strong. When you have a steady dose of fluoride heading toward dental tissues, it’s much easier for them to stay strong and to avoid the development of tooth decay.
