Health Tip: Diet Affects Your Dental Health

Diet plays a critical role in your dental health.

To help keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape, the American Dental Association advises:

  • Choose healthy foods from the five main groups: fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat dairy.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Limit snacking. Eating a meal, rather than just a snack, improves saliva production. This can help protect teeth from cavities.
  • When you do snack, opt for something healthier, such as produce or cheese.
