Kids Dental Care - Healthy Diet for Healthy Teeth
Children get their first tooth by the time they are one year old. Dental care should begin right from the time a baby gets the first tooth to ensure healthy growth and a life free from dental problems. It is important for parents to be aware of good oral hygiene practices, healthy habits and healthy diet that can promote good oral health in children. Our dentist treats patients of all age groups at our office. She educates parents about how to take care of children’s dental health which we believe plays a vital role in the upbringing of the child. Through kids dental care offered at Calgary office, we aim to build healthy communities.
Healthy Diet and Kids’ Dental Health
Nutritious food is very important for healthy growth of children. Teeth and gums that are free from dental infection help your child chew food thoroughly and in speech. Baby teeth maintain space in the jawbone for proper eruption of permanent teeth. Awareness about what food is good and what is not for your child’s teeth can prevent tooth decay and strengthen the teeth creating ways for a healthier life.
What food is good for your child’s teeth?
Cheese and Dairy Products
Cheese, yogurt and milk can protect your children’s teeth by increasing the pH levels in the mouth, thereby neutralizing acidic content and strengthening teeth. The products have Vitamin and Calcium that can strengthen the enamel layer of teeth and reduces the risk of tooth decay.
Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins can improve oral health of children by killing bacteria that cause infection. Carrots, cucumbers and green peas are some food that can increase saliva flow and hydrate the oral cavity preventing the teeth and gums from infection.
Lean Protein Food
Lean beef, eggs, legumes, fish and other sea food can strengthen the teeth and improve oral health of children.
