Healthy teeth and gums not only give you an esthetically pleasing smile, but also indicate that good oral health and hygiene play a very important role in your life. In addition to brushing and flossing, a healthful diet (with natural or added fluoride) protects teeth from decay and keeps the gums healthy. At Bensalem Dentistry, Dr. Michael Eisenbrock wants patients to know that a healthy diet, good oral hygiene and professional cleanings will not only help protect you against oral disease, but it can also help you to keep your teeth for a lifetime.
In addition to brushing and flossing as well as routine dental cleanings, proper nutrition is critical for developing teeth and gums to ensure that they are resistant to tooth decay. Good nutrition remains important for maintaining healthy teeth and gums in adults. Avoiding sugary sweets is also important. Fluoride, which is easily absorbed into tooth enamel, also strengthens your teeth making them more resistant to decay-causing acids. Fluoride may also repair early-stage tooth decay by promoting remineralization of tooth enamel.
