Brushing Teeth - Techniques for Brushing Your Teeth in a Right Way

In order to maintain good dental health, you should maintain a healthy diet and good nutrition. It is important to eat from all of the food groups, including grains, vegetables, fruits, milk, meats/beans and eat some extras sparingly, like oils and fats. A balanced diet is very important in helping to prevent cavities. Cavities are caused due to what we eat and how often those foods are eaten. Also, it is more important to know about Techniques for Brushing Your Teeth in a Right Way.  


Eating apples, celery, and carrots can help remove plaque. If you do eat sweets with sugar in it immediately brush after eating the sweets and this will help prevent cavities. Also, another interesting fact is that sweets are less harmful to teeth if eaten with the main meal, rather than between meals. Table sugar is more harmful to teeth than sugars that occur naturally in fruits and milk.

 Food choices that are more nutritious for teeth include the following, fruits, vegetables,  berries, carrots, nuts, tomatoes, yogurt, chicken, eggs, melons, turkey, salad, pineapple, pumpkin seeds, pears, cereal (that is not high in sugar), sunflower seeds, popcorn, oranges, pizza, tacos, cheese, celery and sugar-free gum/soda.


 Food choices that cause tooth decay include the following: candy, mints, sticky foods like jelly beans or caramels, fruit juice, sugary drinks (like soda, sweet tea, and sweetened juice), cake, cookies, cough drops, doughnuts, gum, honey, jams, jellies, molasses, pies, popsicles, syrup and table sugar. Also, you should consider that many foods can become stuck in our teeth when we eat and that can help cause tooth decay too.

 Foods, such as bread, cereals, pasta, crackers, and potato chips, if left in the mouth for long periods of time can cause tooth decay. If you do not brush your teeth after eating these types of things, the bacteria that live in your mouth breaks the food down into sugars and then the sugars create cavities and tooth decay. This is why it is so important to eat a well-balanced diet, eat sugary substances only on occasion and with a meal, rather than as a snack and immediately brush teeth after eating sugary substances to cut down the risk of developing a cavity.


 According to the American Dental Association, the following are recommended for good dental health: bread, cereals and other grain products that provide vitamins for the healthy growth of teeth, dairy products which provide calcium and Vitamin D for strengthening teeth, fruits and vegetables which provide Vitamin C for healthy gums and lean meats, fish, poultry and beans, which provide iron and protein for overall good health and magnesium for healthy teeth.
