To help you take good care of your teeth and gums, our IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry dental team encourages you to keep up on oral hygiene, visit your dentist, and eat and drink the most tooth-healthy products in the world today. To help you know the best foods and drinks for your smile, we are happy to provide the following list:

Calcium-fortified juices and milk: Dairy products and calcium-fortified juices can encourage a healthy smile by promoting healthy teeth and bones. This helps reduce your risk of suffering tooth decay, enamel erosion, and even tooth loss.

Cheese: Cheese also provides a high amount of calcium for your smile. It can cover your teeth and protect them from the acid that attacks your smile and creates tooth decay. The calcium also helps rebuild your tooth enamel on the spot.

Fruits and vegetables: Crisp fruits and raw vegetables can help your smile in many ways. They can clean the plaque off your teeth, freshen your breath, and protect your gums and other oral tissues from infection and cell damage.

Folic acid: Folic acid is a vitamin you can find in leafy green vegetables and brewer’s yeast. It promotes a healthy mouth and it also supports cell growth throughout your body.
