Maintaining healthy teeth and body is important to the team at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Farmington NM. As a holistic dentistry practice, our concern is not just dental, but the physical and emotional health of our patients.
Everyone knows that maintaining healthy teeth requires daily brushing and flossing, and seeing us twice a year for checkups and cleanings. As holistic dentists we encourage our patients to see their other health practitioners regularly, including physicians, chiropractors, and spiritual advisors.
It’s easy to forget that maintaining a healthy diet can also be beneficial to your teeth. A diet that includes foods that help your muscles and bones will also help you develop healthy gums and healthy teeth. Examples of foods to include in your diet include those rich in vitamin B, such as breads and cereals. Foods rich in vitamin C, usually fruits and vegetables, help improve the health of your gums. Zinc and magnesium are also good for the health of your teeth and are found in foods like lean beef, fish, and poultry.
Just as certain diet choices can be beneficial to the health of your teeth, others can be harmful. Foods and drinks that are high in sugars – especially soda and energy drinks – are more likely to form the acids that attack your teeth and result in decay.
