Cavity-Free Family

Dental care is very important.DSC01906

We grew up knowing that …

eating too much sweets can cause tooth decay, and

food parcels left in between the teeth can cause tooth decay.

plaque “eat up” the teeth by the acid they produce consequently resulting to tooth cavity.

brushing and dental flossing keeps the plaque at bay.

While these are true, these are just bit and parcel of the whole truth.

Healthy teeth and gums can only be attained from eating healthy balanced diet. Brushing and dental flossing could and would never be able to keep tooth cavity from occurring if the body lacks the nutrients it needs.  A tooth is a living thing.  It is much like the body.  A person with strong immune system, which can be attained by eating the needed nutrients, exercise, and enough sleep, is not affected by common viruses that cause colds and cough that easily; or if affected the immune system can easily fight these that going to the doctor is unnecessary.

Teeth are bones. They are said to be the strongest bone in the body, and just like the rest of the bones they require the needed calcium.  But eating food-rich in calcium is not enough.

 

 

Here’s  the thing…DSC01907

1. Calcium is needed for strong and healthy teeth and bones.  But for calcium to be absorbed, it needs the help of Vitamin D and the rest of the fat-soluble vitamins A, E, and K.

2.  The substance phytic acid prevents the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, K.

 

Therefore, for the family to have healthy teeth

*Food intake must include a lot of food rich in vitamins A, D, E, K

* Lessen food intake rich in phytic acid.

 

This diet would definitely bring tooth-cavity free family.  .  .  . no drilling, no frightful trips to the dentist.

Try this out … and you’ll see the difference.

    Nice tips, at least we know that you don’t necessarily need to take a calcium supplement. :)

      Calcium is present in our everyday food like milk, fish, and dairy products. Supplements are given to those who have severe deficiency, and to pregnant women.

  2. My power struggle with my 2 year old is very prevalent in the task of brushing his teeth! Sometimes, he brushes his own teeth (well, more of just making it sipsip hehe). Sometimes, he lets me brush his teeth. Sometimes, we have to wrestle just to have his teeth brushed!

    We should really teach kids on brushing their teeth regularly to avoid future problem and also it is not only teaching them brushing teeth but being hygienic.

  11. Super great tips!! :) We should really take care of our teeth.

  12. Guess what, my mother is a dentist and we all thank her that she always wanted us to brush our teeth. If not, we do not have any teeth anymore due to that we always eat foods that usually get stuck in between our teeth.

      Researches done on group of Aborigines in Australia suggest that, brushing the teeth is not essential in keeping them healthy. What keeps the teeth healthy is eating a balanced diet. This means no tooth decay. Aesthetically these Aborigines may have dirty looking teeth, but on closer examination they do not have any tooth decay. For us, dirty looking teeth is simply unacceptable. This is where brushing and oral prophylaxis come in.

    I hope I can say the same thing with my little sister. My mum always struggles with her when it comes to teaching dental hygiene. LOL
