How can food affect your teeth?

Which foods help strengthen tooth material?

Calcium rich foods, such as low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt and cheese can help to promote strong teeth. Canned salmon, almonds and dark green leafy vegetables are also sources of calcium.

How can I make my teeth stronger?

  • Limit sugary foods
  • Eat foods that protect the enamel
  • Avoid over brushing
  • Avoid grinding your teeth

Which foods are worse?

  • Sugary sweets and foods
  • Soft drinks – whether they are sugar-free or not
  • Wine
  • Citrus fruits
  • Energy drinks

Can tooth enamel be restored?

Once tooth enamel is damaged, it isn’t possible to bring it back. However, weakened enamel can be improved to some extent by increasing it’s mineral content. Although toothpastes and mouthwashes can never rebuild teeth, they can contribute to the remineralisation process.

If you would like some tips on how to improve your oral health, you can book an appointment with our hygienist, even if you aren’t a patient at Evolve.
