Nutrition and Healthy Teeth

Making good nutritional choices, especially if started at a young age, helps to maintain healthy teeth throughout your life.

Combining the right nutritional choices with proper dental maintenance helps to ensure proper oral health.

How, you ask?

The accumulation of plaque, a film of saliva, mucus, bacteria, and food residue (particularly from food that are high in sugar and starch) that builds up on the surface of teeth, can lead to decay and gum disease.

This build up is limited by consistent brushing and flossing combined with healthy food choices.

Overall, the key to healthy teeth lays in a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, limiting unhealthy snacks, proper oral care, and seeing your dentist on a regular basis.

Black Bean Salad with Fresh Mint

Legumes are plant-based foods that are packed with nutrients and can be instrumental to maintaining your overall health. They are high in protein, soluble and insoluble fibre and low in cholesterol. Legumes can be helpful in weight control, low in aid in digestion and extremely versatile, making them easy to incorporate in your diet.

This month we've included an easy-to-make salad that can be used as a satisfying lunch or great side to any dinner.
