The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The Best and Worst Crunchy Foods for Your Teeth

The mere thought of biting into something crunchy brings a refreshing thought. However, realize that crunchy things are not always good for general health and oral health. While some crunchy foods can be very good for the teeth, others can do a great deal of harm.

Given that crunchy foods are something more popular with kids, they should be taught the good and bad about crunchy foods. That does not mean they are banned from eating any bad crunchy food. There are ways to reduce the effects of eating a bad crunchy food and the children should be taught those early on.

Let us look at the bad crunchy foods first. A packet of chips or crackers may sound extremely exciting for the kid, but they are very damaging to the teeth. Pieces of these stick to the teeth and in-between the teeth, thereby attracting germs and causing decay.

Candies are the next lot. They contain a great amount of sugar that does not leave the mouth after the candy is swallowed. The sugar stays long after the candy is out of the mouth and continues to cause damage.

In both these cases, the child should not be told not to eat. The trick is to teach them that while they can eat these, it should immediately be followed by a brushing session or a thorough rinse if brushing is not possible. Get them into the habit of a thorough rinse after each meal and no crunchy food can produce the same damage.

Good Crunchy Foods: The vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly the best crunchy foods to bite into. Not only are they good for overall health with their rich fiber content and vitamins, they also have a great benefit for the oral health. Any fruit from apple to a pear induces salivary glands and increases the cleansing effect of the saliva. The natural fibers also produce the same effect as does brushing for a couple of minutes. The teeth surfaces are freed of plaque and bacteria, thereby reducing the chances of tooth decay. Carrots and celery also contain vitamin A, which is good for healthy tooth structure. They also are rich in water and provide good amount of water for the body. Another good crunchy food is popcorn, which not just is light on the stomach, but also has a good amount of fiber.

The next time you need something crunchy to bite on, take a decision. What you might munch into can have a lot of effect both on your overall health and your teeth. Also, watch your children and teach them how to nullify the bad effects.

Hi lybrate-user, Braces treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the condition of your teeth. During the course of the treatment you need to visit every 4 weeks and once the treatment is complete it is advisable to see your orthodontist every 6 months for about 5 years.

Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration
Munching foods like apples, pears, carrots or celery after brushing can help in preventing discoloration as they trigger tooth-bathing saliva which helps in keeping the teeth white.

For safer and healthier gums, try massaging your gums with eucalyptus or peppermint oil in a circular motion throughout the mouth on a daily basis. It will increase the blood activation thereby keeping your gums healthy.

Drooling or sialorrhea can occur during sleep. It is often the result of open-mouth posture from CNS depressants intake or sleeping on one's side. Sometimes while sleeping, saliva does not build up at the back of the throat and does not trigger the normal swallow reflex, leading to the condition.

I have a problem of recurrence canker sore. It usually happens every 30-60 days. Please advice.

I have a problem of recurrence canker sore. It usually happens every 30-60 days. Please advice.
CANKER SORES- HOME REMEDY TREATMENT They can be triggered by factors such as smoking, stress, trauma, or vitamin and mineral deficiencies. 1. Irritation from poor-fitting dentures, rough fillings, or braces can aggravate canker sores and should be treated by a dentist. 2. Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS): SLS, a component of most toothpastes, is a potential cause of canker sores. Try an SLS-free toothpaste for several months to see if such a change helps 3. Flossing teeth daily and brushing teeth and gums for at least two minutes two to three times daily may help prevent canker sores. 4. B vitamins ? B1, B2 and B6. Take a daily B complex. 5. Lactobacillus acidophilus: (Chew four Lactobacillus tablets three times per day to reduce soreness) 6. Chlorhexidine mouthwash used four times daily can speed healing of canker sores 7. Avoidance of certain kinds of food or beverages (e.g., spicy, acidic, sharp) that cause irritation to existing ulcers might help reduce discomfort. 8. Applying ice directly to ulcers for about ten minutes at a time might help reduce pain as well. 9. Canker Cover is a gel-like protective patch can be placed over ulcers. 10. Hydrogen peroxide might applied directly to ulcers and allowed to remain for about one minute at a time. Peroxides can be used up to four times daily for up to seven days, but more frequent or prolonged use might irritate the oral mucosa. 11. Salt water rinses (one to three teaspoons of table salt in four to eight ounces [120 to 240 mL] of water) or baking soda pastes may be tried to reduce discomfort. 12. Analgesics such as acetaminophen (T. Crocin) or T. ibuprofen daily (contraindicated in conditions with gastric ulcer, asthma, wheezing, and allergy), might also help reduce pain with canker sores. 13. Herbal Aloe vera or lavender oil applied topically to ulcers might have some utility in reducing pain and healing time TREATMENT FOR CANKER SORES Prescription Medications We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. 14. Amlexanox 5% oral paste (Aphthasol), is an anti-inflammatory agent. 15. Sucralfate suspension 16. Topical corticosteroids have been shown to reduce pain from canker sores. Systemic corticosteroids may be useful for patients with more severe or frequently recurring cases. 17. Topical tetracycline regimens may be useful for reducing pain and duration of ulcers. The downside of topical antibiotics is that they might increase the risk of thrush. Oral doxycycline 20 mg twice daily may reduce ulcer recurrence.
