It’s the most unnatural and unfair comment you can throw at anyone in the city of London…’watch what you eat’ because as we all know, there is nothing tastier after a few drinks than a take away. But there is a reason to at least, be aware of what you consume so that you can make informed decisions about your diet. For a start, protecting and building up your immune system with a healthy lifestyle, is good for your teeth in the long run. The immune system feeds the saliva levels in the mouth that deter bacteria and a buildup of plaque that cause gum disease. But when it comes to oral hygiene, there are certain foods that you should try to avoid to make your cleaning program easier. Heavy carbohydrate and sugar based food run riot in the mouth and if you love your snacks, you have to ensure you remove these foods correctly, because they have incredible adhesion to the surface of the teeth, and get right in between them. Starch foods breed bacteria more than any others, and sugary foods and drinks, produce acid more than any others. Foods high in nutrients and vitamins will also feed the minerals into the blood that teeth thrive on.
