HomeOral HealthTips for Naturally Strengthening Your Teeth

If you’re looking for the secret to strong, healthy teeth, look no further than this blog post. Read on for our top tips to keep your smile sturdy, naturally.

Perfect Your Routine

There’s not much to it–perfecting your oral care regimen is the main component in great dental health. Sometimes, the secret is that simple! Brush and floss daily, and don’t forget to clean your tongue. There are a number of natural toothpastes and mouthwashes on the market. Feel free to check in with us for recommendations.

Invest in a Tongue Scraper

Speaking of your tongue, it is an important, but often neglected, part of the mouth, and it deserves the same daily attention that you give teeth and gums get. A tongue scraper is a simple tool that can help you keep your tongue bacteria-free without any added products or chemicals.

Know Your Nutrients

A healthy diet results in healthy teeth. Certain foods pack nutrients that are especially beneficial to your dental wellness. Foods high in protein, calcium, phosphorus, and zinc can help you keep your teeth strong. Of course, steering clear of unhealthy foods is half the battle to obtaining a winning smile. Avoid overly sugary and starchy foods, which will breed bad bacteria capable of causing decay, and stay away from enamel wrecking indulgences such as soda.

Stick to a Straw

Enjoy your liquids through a straw. It’s especially important to do so if you’re drinking something acidic or carbonated, like juice or seltzer water, or a stain-inducing beverage such as coffee. Bonus points if you keep it eco-friendly–opt for a reusable straw made out of stainless steel.
