How does calcium in food affect your teeth?

By: Smileway Dental

There are many types of foods and beverages that can weaken the teeth, the most concerning substances containing high amounts of sugars and starches. Sugary and starchy foods increase acid production in the mouth, which can lead to the erosion of your teeth. Erosion of the enamel, the hardest tissue in the body, can weaken and damage(breaks, chips, cracks) and decay the teeth.

One of the most effective ways to strengthen your teeth is to consume calcium because it gives minerals to our teeth as well. You can obtain calcium from many different types of food and beverage aside from milk. Such as

1. cheese

2. soya milk

3. tofu

4. Broccoli

5. Cabbage

6. Beans

7. Nuts

8. And soft-boned fish( like salmon and sardines).

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
