The Connection Between Breakfast And Your Healthy Smile

IT’S OFTEN SAID, and health studies agree, that breakfast may be the most important meal of the day. And by the way, breakfast affects our oral health too!

Popular Breakfast Choices Can Damage Smiles

Given our on-the-go lifestyles, breakfast can become an imbalanced, over-sugary meal! We don’t typically eat candy for breakfast—yet, we choose popular cereals and pastries that are full of sugar.

These unhealthy breakfast choices can be damaging to our teeth and gums with multiplying effects if we’re not brushing and flossing after breakfast.

A Healthy, Balanced Breakfast Can Protect Your Smile

Your mouth, like your body, needs nutritious food to stay healthy. A balanced breakfast rich in fruits, vegetables, fiber, and healthy proteins can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay, early tooth loss, and gum disease.

Tips For A Smile-Friendly Breakfast

  • Eat whole grains (oatmeal, whole wheat bread) instead of refined grains.
  • Eat firm, ripe fruits and healthier vegetables.
  • Drink water or unsweetened tea to strengthen tooth enamel and help prevent tooth decay.
  • Use moderation with fruit juices and smoothies—they’re typically high in sugar and can be quite acidic.
  • Consider dinner for breakfast! Chicken, fish, beans, cheese, etc.
  • Eat high fiber cereals with less preservatives and added sugar.
