Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Teeth

Aside from brushing teeth regularly and having regular dental check-ups, healthy lifestyle changes are also needed for achieving good oral health. Food and drinks can cause tooth decay, especially now that they are increasingly acidic due to industrial processing.
A balanced diet that is good for dental health includes plenty of fruit and vegetables; starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta; protein-rich foods like meat, fish, eggs, and beans; and milk and other types of dairy. Meanwhile, limit your consumption of food and drinks high in fat and sugar in order to prevent tooth decay.
Smoking also affects dental health. Smoking can stain teeth yellow, lead to bad breath, and increase the risk of gum disease and other health problems. Other foods and drinks that can stain the teeth apart from cigarette include wine, tea, and coffee.
Likewise, alcohol consumption is associated with dental health. Alcohol can damage the outer surface of the teeth, resulting in enamel loss. In addition, excessive alcohol consumption is also linked to an increased risk of developing mouth cancer. Furthermore, the combination of smoking and drinking alcohol further increase the risk of mouth cancer.
