Natural Ways of Boosting Your Oral Health This Year
Posted on 7/20/2018 by Matt Aldridge DDS
Have you made a resolution to improve your oral health this year? If so, you don't have to spend thousands of dollars on expensive dental treatments. There are ways that you can naturally boost your oral health without breaking your budget. Use a StrawAs a rule, you should try to minimize your consumption of dark liquids like coffee, red wine, soda, and tea. However, if you want to drink one of these beverages, using a straw can help. A straw will divert the staining liquid away from your teeth, ensuring your enamel stays safe. Drink More WaterWater is the most important beverage for your health – oral and overall. Water keeps your mouth lubricated and will wash away acid and bacteria. It also wards of dry mouth and can fend off bad breath. Try a Natural MouthwashThere are plenty of natural mouthwashes that can help to clean out your mouth without the chemicals. While they won't kill the bacteria in your mouth, they will promote a good oral environment, which is good for your mouth and your overall health. Eat BetterA healthy diet is the foundation of good oral health. Make sure you are eating foods high in calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, and selenium. Lean proteins are also necessary, so choose chicken and turkey over red meat. Rinse with Baking SodaYou can also rinse out your mouth with baking soda for a natural way to whiten your teeth and freshen your breath. Simply add ¼ teaspoons to a cup of water and rinse. This will help to balance your mouth's pH value. If you enjoy natural remedies, there are plenty of things that you can do to improve your oral health. Call us today to set up your next appointment and learn more. We want you to have the healthiest mouth possible....
