When it comes to dental health, what people eat and drink - and how they consume it - has a powerful impact on their teeth. According to San Antonio cosmetic dentist Dr. John Moore, regular tooth brushing and flossing are only part of a tooth-healthy lifestyle. “The old adage ‘You are what you eat’ is especially true for your teeth,” Moore said.
A tooth’s worst enemy, he said, is acid – either directly contained in the food and drink, or produced by bacteria that thrive on sugar and convert it to acid. The mouth’s best friends are foods that neutralize acids, provide minerals and vitamins to repair tooth enamel and stimulate saliva.
