Why Do Fishers Dentists Like Potatoes?

Fishers teeth bleaching best price

The reason dentists like potatoes is because they are so “filling” ba-dum ching.

Lame joke, I know. But seriously, the wiser our patients in Pendleton and Carmel are about what they eat, the easier it will be to care for their dear old teeth.

It doesn’t have to be potatoes, but the mouth does request that we take a good look at what can be damaging and upsetting it.

The Sugar Problem
Sugars get converted by bacteria in the mouth to acids. It is these acids that begin to attack the enamel on the teeth and get the decay process started for Pendleton people of all ages. Fruits have a high water content which can dilute the effects of the sugars they contain and get the saliva flowing so they aren’t really no-nos. It’s the chocolate bars, hard candies, cookies, cakes and pies.

Acidic Food Coupling
Oranges, tomatoes, lemons and the like should be eaten as part of a meal to minimize the acidic effects. Carmel folks are wise to eat a variety of healthy foods such as cheeses, chicken, other meats, nuts and milk. The calcium and phosphorus will support tooth remineralization.

Timing of Meals
The more often you eat the more often your teeth are subject to the decay process. This can be tempered by choosing healthy snacks. And keep in mind, the later at night you eat the more likely you are to not only eat unhealthy foods, but to skip oral hygiene altogether.

I hope this blog assists in keeping you on the path to a healthy mouth and gives you something to think about if you’re interested in oral health or a smile makeover in Indianapolis or Fishers, Indiana.
