Many people know their diet choices are linked to the health of their body, but did you know your diet can also be linked to the health of your mouth? Well, it’s true! Your diet can affect your smile, which is why Dr. Gary Shmurak with Apex Dental Care in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, is happy to provide you these tips to help keep your body and smile healthy through a proper diet.

An importamt tip about your diet and oral health is to think before you snack or eat your meals. If you think first about how the foods or drinks will influence your health, you could keep from consuming unhealthy foods or drinks. It is also important to drink plenty of water. Saliva and water keeps your mouth clear of bacteria, and food particles from nesting in your smile.

Foods that can be healthy for your teeth include fruits, whole grains, lean protein such as lean beef, lean chicken and fish, peas, low-fat dairy foods, and fruits. These popular foods are healthy and can help give you a healthy body along with healthy gums and teeth.
