Best Foods for Your Oral Health

Best Foods for Your Oral HealthA well-rounded diet can help your body stay healthy, but it can also help your smile stay healthy. Your diet and your dental health are closely linked, and while a healthy diet can boost dental health, a poor diet can damage it. Our dentist in West Hollywood explains what you need to eat to enjoy a better smile.


All vegetables contain essential nutrients, but leafy, dark green vegetables are especially important. These vegetables contain vitamins A and B, which can boost gum health.


Fibrous fruits such as apples or pears can help keep teeth cleaner while citrus fruits are a major source of vitamin C, which is essential for your gums.

Whole Grains

Whole grains are good sources of vitamin B, which can reduce your risk of mouth ulcers and other dental problems that affect the soft tissues of the mouth.


Eating meat and eggs boost your magnesium and zinc intake. Poultry, fish and eggs also provide your body with the protein it needs to support gum development.


Calcium is essential for healthy bones and healthy teeth. Milk and yogurt are some of the best-known sources of calcium, but you can also increase your daily intake by enjoying almonds, cheese and leafy green vegetables. You can round out your mineral intake by including spinach, bananas, dates, molasses, soybeans and nuts.
