So you just got your new Rapid Braces and you’re now ready to enjoy your six-month smile! Did you know that there are some great foods for your teeth along with some pretty bad ones? Here is a list of the best and words foods that you can eat with your new Six Month Smile!
Cheese – We all know how much everyone loves cheese, but now it comes with added benefits! It’s great for your teeth! Cheese is high in calcium which protects your bones, and your new smile will thank you for eating extra cheese. Cheese also raises the PH balance in your mouth which sounds a little odd but studies have shown that it reduces your risk of tooth decay significantly – so eat up!
Greens – As with most healthy food list greens usually find their way on there somehow. Not only are greens great for your overall health but they’re fantastic for your smile! They are high in calcium, folic acid and vitamin B which is the perfect combination of a strong and glowing six-month smile!
Yogurt – The cousin of cheese, yogurt is extremely high in protein and calcium which is essential for a healthy and glowing smile. Yogurt is actually very high in bacteria but it’s healthy bacteria! Called probiotics the healthy bacteria destroys the bad bacteria and helps protect against gum disease and tooth decay.
Ice – A lot of us are guilty of chewing on ice, but this is one of the worst things that you can do and your new six-month smile will not thank you for it. Chewing on hard objects such as ice can make it very easy for dental injury and the need for emergency room visits.
Citrus – We all love citrus as it’s full of Vitamin C and the sourness of citrus is enjoyed on many different foods and in drinks but too much citrus can be a really bad thing for your new six-month smile. The acidity in the citrus can actually wear away at your enamel and leave you with very sensitive teeth. So eat and drink your citrus in moderation!
Alcohol – Alcohol should always be used responsibly and in moderation but did you know that it can actually be very harmful to your smile? Drinking too much alcohol causes dehydration which leads to dry mouth which leads to a very unpleasant time for your smile! Being dehydrated and adding dry mouth on top of it can have very harmful effects on your smile such as gum disease, tooth decay, oral infections and potentially mouth cancer if the alcohol is drank excessively.
Taking care of your new six-month smile is easy if you eat healthily and eat bad things in moderation. Your smile will last you a lifetime if you put in the proper care and have regular dental check-ups with Rapid Braces! Remember to eat healthily and be aware of what you’re putting inside of your body!
