Nutritious Nutrients for a Healthy Smile!
Good oral hygiene is essential to maintain good oral health. Without a proper regimen in place we would be more prone to gum disease and tooth decay. Another important essential to good oral health is a healthy diet.
Do you know what vitamins are needed for a healthy diet and healthy smile? At Southwood Dental Studio, let us help spread the knowledge! Calcium is the building block of our teeth and bones. We should consume enough of it to help fight bone loss and tooth softening (and aid in tooth development). We also need to make sure there is enough Phosphorus and Vitamin D in our diet to help us absorb the nutrients of Calcium. Vitamin C is a must for good gum health. Vitamin A helps aid with salivary flow. Iron helps our immune system and Vitamin E can help as an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. Vitamin B can also help with inflammation and can help fight off canker sores.
Keep a healthy diet, good oral care routine and visit your dentist twice a year to keep up your oral health. Contact us at Southwood Dental Studio in London to learn more!
