Your Diet is More Important Than Brushing

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Your Diet is More Important Than BrushingBrush your teeth, floss your mouth, and see the dentist. That is sometimes referred to be the rules of good oral health. Simply follow that recommendation if you want fewer cavities... Right? Unfortunately, modern dentistry has devised several solutions to a problem that has resulted in cavities becoming the world's most avoidable chronic illness. But they haven't addressed the underlying issue: your nutrition.

Ancient Vs. Modern

Thousands of years ago, Paleolithic humans hunted and foraged for sustenance. Our bodies have evolved to reflect our food patterns throughout human history. The ancients had superior oral health than the majority of the civilized world today! Despite this, children in these societies suffered from significant orthodontic difficulties and high levels of tooth decay after only a single generation of consuming a starchy, bread-filled, processed diet. Sugar, bread, and processed foods were not the only variations in these diets.

The proper synergistic transport of calcium throughout the body is dependent on vitamin K2. Without this process, which also necessitates vitamins A and D, teeth are considerably more prone to deteriorate. Furthermore, contemporary diets are thought to be causing an increase in cavities since people's meals are not as diversified as they formerly were. Diets high in leafy greens, animal meat, butter, and seeds give a variety of textures for mastication, which is beneficial for keeping the mouth and teeth clean.

Why Brushing is Important

You may be wondering if you should clean your teeth at this time. Yes, cleaning your teeth twice a day is an excellent idea! Brushing your teeth disrupts the germs that dwell on the surface of your teeth, resulting in dental issues. Therefore, it is less likely to collect over time and cause "acid assaults," which erode tooth structure and contribute to dental disease. For further advantages, use toothpaste with hydroxyapatite or fluoride. This will aid in the prevention of tooth decay. Brushing correctly takes only a few minutes every day. The food you eat, on the other hand, has an impact on your oral health 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
