We know eating healthy is a smart decision. However, did you know your diet directly affects the health of your teeth too? A nutritious diet promotes new muscle, bone, skin and blood to develop. Without a nutritious diet, we expose ourselves to infection and weak bones. As a child it is even more important to have a nutritious diet. This helps to ensure your body can build strong and healthy teeth.
Here’s what a balanced diet should contain:
- Some carbohydrates
- Essential fatty acids (healthy fats)
- Essential amino acids (proteins)
- 15 vitamins
- 25 minerals
A deficient or unhealthy diet can lead to tooth decay or gum disease. Speak to us, your family dentist in Woodbridge to help keep your teeth healthy and strong! They are meant to last a lifetime.
