Healthy Teeth and Your Guthrie Diet

Maintaining healthy teeth is an important concern us at Redbud Dental of Edmond. We want all of our patients to enjoy healthy teeth and gums.

Maintaining healthy teeth requires thorough brushing and flossing, every single day. Regular cleanings and checkups are also necessary for preventing cavities and maintaining good dental health.

It’s easy to overlook the fact that a healthy diet is beneficial to your teeth. A diet that includes foods that help your muscles and bones will also help you develop healthy gums and teeth. We recommend foods rich in vitamin B, such as breads and cereals. Foods rich in vitamin C, like fruits and vegetables, help improve the health of your gums. Zinc and magnesium are also good for the health of your teeth and are found in foods like lean beef, fish, and poultry.

Saliva is vital to healthy teeth because it assists in maintaining the pH balance in your mouth. Foods high in fiber encourages saliva production, as does the chewing of sugar-free gum. Gum, however, can damage unhealthy teeth, or even pull out fillings.

At Redbud Dental of Edmond we want all our patients to enjoy good dental heatlh. People from Guthrie and Deer Creek come to our practice for complete family and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today!
