Cosmetic Dentistry Aventura FL Specialists’ Guide on Foods that are good for your Gums and Teeth

 JJ Dental offers two convenient office locations in Fort Lauderdale & Lauderdale by the Sea.

We are what we eat in terms of health and well being. It is not a surprise that the research on nutrition and diet includes eating recommendations for the health of our gums and teeth. While we have to eat some food varieties that are good for our hearts and brains, we sometimes neglect the teeth and gums-centric foods. This is why our cosmetic dentistry Aventura FL specialists are here today: to give you a quick and yummy guide on foods that do miracles to your gums, teeth, and overall health!

1. Apples

An apple a day works exactly like a toothbrush. Almost. While you chew your apple, you perform a thorough dental cleaning. Moreover, apples contain some acids that clean the surface of your teeth as well, while they remove plaque and tartar. If you do not suffer fruit acids well, our cosmetic dentistry Aventura FL specialists recommend you chew raw carrots, celery or cauliflower for teeth cleaning and a boost of vitamins.

2. Dairy Products

Calcium is vital for our lives. It keeps our bones, muscles, and internal organs healthy. It keeps our hair, teeth, and nails strong as well. The most common dietary source of calcium is dairy products. A glass of milk, a slice of cheese, or a cup of yogurt also contain the protein casein. Researchers found that it lowers the levels of acid in your mouth. If you do not tolerate dairy products, switch to other calcium-rich foods like canned salmon, sardines or white beans.

3. Everything Green and Crunchy

The crunchiness of raw fruits and vegetables act as teeth cleaners, our cosmetic dentistry Aventura FL experts say. However, you need a boost of minerals and vitamins to keep those gums and teeth healthy and to prevent diseases, inflammation or infections. Introduce green vegetables in your diet and embrace the power of broccoli, spinach, kale, okra, Bok Choy and others. They boost your health, offer you delicious dish varieties, and keep your teeth pristine.

4. Ginger

While not many people can tolerate the powerful scent and taste of raw ginger, this root has a strong reputation as natural remedy and super-food. We use it whenever we experience colds, fever, inflammation or infections. Ginger has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties so that it will perform miracles for your teeth and gums.

5. Onions

While we do not necessarily like smelling like onions, especially in social contexts, these scented vegetables are incredible gum and teeth protectors. Just like ginger, we use them in remedies against cold, fevers, swelling, or infections. Onions can wipe out bacteria strains from your mouth, thus strengthening your gums and teeth and keeping you safe from dental problems. Raw onions are the best, so throw some slices in your salad next time. This is what they invented mouthwash for, really.

6. Almonds

Almonds are great companions for your teeth and gums. Their crunchiness cleans your teeth, while their high levels of calcium and protein boost your overall (and especially dental) health. Almonds are quite versatile, so you can introduce them in salads, eat them as non-sugary snacks, add them to a plate of appetizers, and so on.

Our cosmetic dentistry Aventura FL specialists say you should never skip brushing, flossing, rinsing, and visiting your dentist twice a year. While these foods are great for your teeth and gums, they cannot compensate professional treatments and interventions.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for me smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.

We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
