This common saying is true: what we eat affects our health. Your teeth and gums need sustenance just like any other part of the body. So if we aren’t giving out mouth the nutrients it needs it can get pretty ugly and have tooth decay or gum disease.
- People without access to affordable dental care have significantly higher rates of oral disease. 9 out of 10 people experience tooth decay (cavities), and it remains the most common chronic.
- We will show you the foods you should eat, from fresh fruit and vegetable diets that maintain healthy teeth to low-fat milk, yoghurt or cheese that offers the much-needed calcium.
- Yoghurt is rich in calcium and other important elements that can strengthen your bones and help protect you from tooth decay, so eat up your yoghurt.
“Eating nutrient-rich foods from all food groups promotes both dental health as well as overall body wellness”
