How to get stronger teeth: A dentist’s advice
Revelations of a dentist: How to get stronger teeth
We all dread going to the dentist. It is quite possibly the most difficult situation that you find yourself in, and the most hated place on earth. Most people don’t even consider going to the dentist until they begin suffering from pain or any other problem that disrupts their lifestyle, but unfortunately, you have to go sometime at least for a check-up, but until you do, we will try to give you some advice on how to get stronger teeth, gums and bones.
How to get stronger teeth:
The first thing you need to know that the development of all our teeth starts when we are in our mother’s womb, and once we are born, there is very little you can do to make your teeth stronger, so our first piece of advice is really not for you personally, but to all you expecting mother’s out there. A healthy diet is of the utmost importance, not just for your sake but for the baby’s overall health as well as his dental health.
Calcium, Magnesium and Sodium are all extremely important minerals for your child’s teeth development, either through basic dietary adjustments such as drinking loads of milk and a healthy amount of salt, or even through supplements, but you have to ask your OBGYN specialist on what’s best for you. On a side note, your own dental health is also important, as the rate of decay and gum disease sky rockets when you are pregnant (because your baby is syphoning all the nutrients and vitamins from your body) so make sure you visit your dentist for a check-up before the final 3 months of pregnancy.
That is how you get stronger teeth during their formation, but what about afterwards? Well, the inner composition of teeth is not going to change anymore, but you can do a few of the following to make sure you don’t need a dentist for an emergency (AKA stronger teeth):
How to get stronger bones:
Bones are in a lot of ways similar to teeth. They have almost the same structure and layers, with the difference in the amount of minerals present in them; However, unlike teeth, you can influence the internals structure of bones even after birth, because they have richer blood supplies than teeth, and are capable of adding (or subtracting) components from their internal composition.
For bones, the 2 most important nutrients are Calcium and Potassium, and these are found naturally in Milk and Bananas among others. If you are an athlete, and taking supplements to make your muscles stronger, then calcium would definitely be a part of your supplements, but again it is best to follow the advice of a dietary expert on how and when to take supplements.
How to get stronger gums:
You have to think of gums as an organ that is in need of caring and supplementation as much as teeth and bones. For gums, it is not a question of strength with minerals and supplements, but how to keep it healthy. Gum disease is a wide spread condition, and could lead to a variety of problems the most unfortunate of which is teeth loss, however, it is very easy to avoid if you follow the following list of very simple instructions:
That is pretty much all you need to know on how to get stronger teeth, bones and gums so that you don’t need that dreaded emergency visit to the dentist, but make sure you go for a check-up anyway though.
