In general, poor nutrition and vitamin deficiency cause gingival disorders, tooth decay and melting of the jawbone. To prevent this, we should not neglect your regular check-ups by the dentist. I have briefly listed the foods that are important for our teeth below. After taking this step for a healthy and happy life, you should also pay attention to these. Many foods and beverages that are frequently consumed in healthy eating and modern life are rich in acid. The problem isn’t just carbonated drinks, healthy choices are also among the acidic ‘moments’ of the day: Fruit, juices, salad dressings, even mineral water with a squeeze of lemon.
ESCARCEL research shows that even just two fresh fruits can put tooth enamel at risk. To prevent cavities, the acids produced by the bacteria must be kept to a minimum. Because you can’t see or feel it right away, the first signs of acid corrosion can only be accurately diagnosed by a dentist. But there are some symptoms you should check:
• Dark yellow, discolored tooth or teeth,
• Shiny or “glassy” especially around cutting edges
• Small cracks or lines on the edge of the tooth,
• Small cavities formed on the surface of the tooth and the underlying dentin
become more severe as a result of greater exposure
• The prevalence of tooth wear is between 26-35 years old, 18-25 years old
more than between.
• Tooth wear is more common in subjects who frequently consume acidic foods.
• You should go to the dentist regularly. Dentists can assess the level of risk from your diet and brushing habits and check for early signs of acid corrosion.
• Do not give up on eating healthy foods, especially fruit, but reconsider your eating style. Avoid prolonged contact of the tooth with acid and try to consume acidic beverages with a straw.
• Use a fluoride toothpaste and a fluoride mouthwash that provides extra protection against the effects of acids in foods consumed every day.
It is effective in protecting foods such as cheese, chicken, meat products and milk by reducing the acid level in the mouth or by meeting the calcium and phosphorus requirement necessary for re-mineralization.
Consume whole grains every day. Opt for brown rice, bread, oatmeal and wheat products instead of white bread or rice.
You should choose fish for your protein needs.
Most importantly, we can prevent acid from accumulating in the mouth by drinking water half an hour after each product.
And finally, chewing sugar-free gum containing Xylitol reduces the risk of cavities.
• Patients suffering from heartburn/reflux/regurgitation or persistent vomiting have a higher level of tooth wear.
