How to Strengthen your teeth

Posted by Grayson Wise on Oct 8 2021, 07:56 AM

Having strong teeth is an essential thing to living our lives to the fullest. Our teeth don’t only need to look good in photos, but they are crucial to speaking, eating, and so much more. Strong teeth are just as important as strong bones, and well, after all teeth are bones themselves! There are many things you can start to implement into your life to get stronger and even whiter teeth.

First and foremost, tooth enamel is the main proponent for strong and healthy teeth. Without enamel, your inner tooth layers are unprotected and more susceptible to breaking down and decaying. Bacteria, acid, and tooth decay are all guarantees to get around those inner layers of your teeth without a strong enamel. Weak enamel is horrible for your oral health, and always keep in mind that even if someone has super white teeth, this doesn’t mean their enamel is strong.

So, how do we improve out enamel?

You should know that enamel does not regenerate, so once it’s gone, it is gone! So, in order to prevent your enamel going down, it is important to lessen your intake of demineralizing foods and beverages. This includes simple sugars and fermentable carbohydrates. In other words, cutting back on sugary drinks and foods isn’t just better for your diet. It is also a crucial way to keeping our teeth strong! Demineralization will literally eat away at your enamel , and that is no good.

It is also crucial to brush twice a day and floss once a day. The better you brush and with a better toothbrush, the less bacteria that will be left to eat away at your enamel! Be sure to not brush too hard though! Talk to us about how to pick the best toothbrush for you.

Lastly, remineralize! By using mineral fluoride, if your community doesn’t fluoride the water or you don’t drink tap water, supplements can be helpful. You can also boost those minerals by eating a well-balanced diet that includes whole grains, lean protein, fruits and veggies, and some dairy.

With just a few lifestyle changes, you can improve your teeth and keep them strong for a very long time! Don’t wait until it is too late, get to strengthening those teeth!
