The Dental Diet: Are the Healthiest Foods for Your Body the Healthiest for Your Teeth?
Weâ€™ve all heard that fruits and vegetables are good for our bodies. But are those same fruits and vegetables the best choices for your dental health? Are sugary snacks as bad for your teeth as we assume? Is it better to drink tea in the morning than coffee?
Whenever you consume foods and drinks you do so orally, which means that they must travel through your mouth and past your teeth. As this course explains, whatâ€™s good for the body may not necessarily be good for the teeth. Specific vitamins, supplements, acid levels, and some alternative oral therapies are also discussed.
