Oral Health Nutrition

At any age, a complete oral health home program includes sound nutritional habits. Many of the foods that help your body build strong muscles and bones also help build strong, healthy teeth and gums.

Dairy products provide calcium and vitamin D for strengthening teeth and bones. Breads and cereals supply B vitamins for growth and iron for healthy blood, which in turn contributes to healthy gum tissue.

Fruits and vegetables containing vitamin C (among other important vitamins) are essential to maintaining healthy gums.

Lean meat, fish, poultry and beans provide protein, iron, zinc and magnesium for strong teeth and bones as well as for overall good health.
