Re: [AlternativeAnswers] Foods for Oral Hygiene


Another good rinse for the mouth is plain baking soda and warm water. You can add peroxide to it in equal parts water and peroxide. Alone baking soda has helped me when I had gum pain in my mouth. It drains the infection from a sore gum. And it is a very cheap mouth rinse.

Foods for Oral Hygiene:

Nutritionists recommend certain foods that boost the oral hygiene and

make the teeth whitening naturally while eating the same. These foods

are also considered as teeth whitening foods and have been becoming

popular in the U S A, United Kingdom and in other parts of the world

including India. Generally, we brush the teeth with toothpaste to

maintain oral hygiene once or twice a day. But Dental experts advise to

clean the teeth after every meal; of course it is not possible for

everyone to do the same everyday and after every meal.

Here we discuss certain foods for oral hygiene that clean the teeth

naturally and improve the oral health and prevent tooth decay and

cavities. The most recommend foods for cleaning the teeth are fresh

vegetables and fruits. Fruits such as apples require lot of chewing while eating, that clean the

teeth surface naturally. Vegetables like, cucumber, broccoli,

cauliflower, carrots, celery and Peas provide the same action as that of

apples, that clean the teeth, and the fiber that is placed between

teeth function, while eating the same, acts as natural floss. These

crunchy fruits and vegetables boost the secretion of saliva in the

mouth, leaving the mouth fresh and clean.

Dental experts and Nutritionists advise to take crunchy fruits as

snacks between meals to get rid of plaque, as this provides same action

of cleaning the teeth with paste and brush after meal. These natural

foods provide good health

to teeth and mouth and improve overall general health. In general,

Doctors say, mouth is the window of overall general health, and hence

maintaining oral health is as important as maintaining overall health.

Oranges enriched with Vitamin C prevent the enamel loss on teeth, strengthen the teeth and gums, and promotes overall oral hygiene. When we eat celery, it produces more saliva that nullifies cavity causing bacteria in the mouth. Intake of apples reduces the consumption of sugar, and it strengthens gums and teeth.

Dairy products such as cheese, milk, yoghurt, stabilizes mouth PH levels, prevents the loss of enamel on teeth, produces more saliva, prevents gum disease by killing cavity causing microbes, and the presence of lactic acid prevent tooth decay, while the presence of calcium, phosphate improve oral health.

The enzyme known as malic acid found in grapes makes the teeth white and clean. Fresh green beans also keep the teeth healthy. Gargling of water after meals reduces the staining of teeth. The consumption of sufficient water is very important for oral hygiene. Just taking one or two slices of onions along with meals; kill the disease causing bacteria in the mouth due to the presence of anti bacterial property. Cashew nuts kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay as proved in the research. Wasabi is found to prevent bacteria sticking on teeth.
