Protect Your Teeth Through
Healthy Diet Choices
A healthy mouth does more for you than you might imagine.
Your mouth lets you speak clearly, express your emotions,
and eat a good diet by chewing and tasting the foods you
enjoy. But tooth decay or gum disease can take a bite out of
your oral health. A quarter of Americas 2- to 5-year-olds and
half the 12- to 15-year-olds have tooth decay. As many as one
in eight U.S. adults has advanced gum disease. Even more
troubling, new research paints a grim picture of the oral
health status of adults with intellectual and developmental
disabilities. One-third have untreated cavities, 80 percent
have gum disease and 10 percent are missing some teeth! A
growing body of research suggests that oral health affects
overall health, and dental issues go far beyond a person's
smile. Brush up on how the food and drink you put into your
mouth can protect itso that you and your family can keep
smiling.

Say No to Sodas and Sweets
The effects of sugary beverages and foods on your teeth
arent so sweet. Carbonated soft drinks can erode tooth
enamel, leading to decay. Sugary snacks such as cake,
cookies, and candies harm tooth enamel. Taffy, gummy bears,
and chewy snacks like raisins and other dried fruits are also a
common cause of decay. They can easily get stuck between
teeth and arent likely to be cleared away by saliva.

Try These Better Options
The following beverages and foods support dental health:


Fresh green tea. This antioxidant-rich
drink can reduce cavity risk because it
offers polyphenols that help keep plaque
from sticking to your teeth. To keep it
healthy, brew it fresh from bags and
dont add much sugar.





Milk and plain yogurt. Theyre calcium-rich and low-
acid choices. Foods that provide calcium and vitamin D
are vital for strong bones and teeth. Healthy protein
foods and healthy fats may have a protective effect on
tooth enamel especially Soy milk and Almond milk.




Fruits and vegetables.
Fruits high in vitamin C, including oranges, grapefruit,
strawberries, and kiwi, help keep gum tissue healthy and strong. Celery and carrots
clean and stimulate your gums. Sweet potatoes and broccoli help form and maintain
tooth enamel. Onions contain sulfur compounds that can kill bacteria in the mouth,
helping to combat decay.

Other Nutrition Principles



Choose whole grain breakfast cereals with low sugar content.

Eat fresh fruit in place of fruit juices most of the time.

Drink only water between meals.

Drink uoridated water if you prefer bottled water, buy the
kind with uoride added at a concentration of 0.7 to 1.2 mg/L
(parts/million).

Avoid soft drinks (carbonated beverages) during pregnancy
and at least the rst 30 months of life.

Limit snacking between meals, especially soft drinks and
snack foods.



More Steps To Take


You dont have to oss all your teeth; only the ones you
want to keep!
Tooth decay is largely preventable. Practicing good oral
hygiene is important. Each day, brush twice and oss at least
once. Have your teeth cleaned every six months and visit your
dentist regularly for a checkup. Talk with your dentist about
further ideas on how to keep your smile healthy.
