Packing A Dentist Approved Lunch

lunch 2It’s important to remember that Cavities can affect people of all age groups.  Whether you’re packing your child’s lunch or your own, remember that including tooth-friendly snacks can go a long way towards keeping cavities away.  Selecting the right foods, along with healthy dental hygiene habits, are a winning combination for protecting your teeth.  Try to include these healthy food items in your lunch:

1.  Whole Wheat Bread
2.  Fresh Vegetables
3.  Fresh Fruit
4.  Cheese
5.  Nuts and Seeds
6.  Milk

Remember that along with eating right,  dental hygiene plays a major role. Brushing your teeth two times a day with fluoride toothpaste as well as flossing can help prevent cavities and tooth decay. It is also very important to get regular check-ups and teeth cleanings to not only maintain your dental health and a great smile but also, your health in general.  It is recommended that you schedule a checkup once every 6 months.

Proper oral hygiene at home is most certainly important and can go a long way towards maintaining dental health.  However, you cannot remove hardened plaque and tartar at home with a toothbrush and flossing.
