Every time I go to the doctor, he keeps reminding me of the oral hygiene that should be maintained.
I follow all this: I brush twice, floss, mouthwash every day and still I had problems. Last time I went with a cavity problem. I had to do composite resin filling. The doctor did his job well and it was my responsibility to take care of it. But soon I was having gum problem around the filled tooth. I came back to the doctor for a check-up. He said it was probably the food I ate. Too much acidic and too much sweet can damage your tooth in no time. He recommended some food habits.
1. Having milk and cheese helps to prevent cavity by neutralizing the acidic formation that is caused by other foods.
2. Although apples contain sugars, the anti-cavity property of the fruit outweighs it.
3. Benefits of water go without saying. 99% of the saliva is water but carbonated water and juices don't give the benefit.
4. Leafy veggies are for the overall health and nutrients in them can prevent gum disease.
I have heard a totlly contrasting information on tooth cavities by eating apples or any sweet fruits and milk products. Can anyone clarify this?
