Teeth-friendly Fruits & Vegetables No. 3: Kiwi

kiwi

Taking care of our smile, those pearly whites, is no easy task. The truth be told, we all could use some help in the teeth department. Often people find themselves searching for guidance to discover what’s best for their teeth. Seeing an orthodontist is the right step to take to ensure a smile’s health and longevity. Similarly, people from all walks of life pursue corrective help for their smile. Whether one has tooth gaps or a crooked toothy grin, proactive solutions like braces or invisalign may garner positive results.

Perfecting Smiles

From the more traditional braces, to the cutting edge technology found in invisalign, there are many options available to address probing questions related to acquisition of healthy teeth and gums. When visiting an orthodontist they may advise certain nutritional choices to encourage better mouth health. If a corrective method is recommended by an expert, what does that mean for the patient? It means a change in diet or habits might be required. Have no fear! While some say “let them eat cake” an orthodontist instead may declare something just as sweet, such as “let them eat kiwi!”

Kiwis Can

Kiwis are perfect helpers for the health of our teeth. With 100 percent of the daily recommended vitamin C found in a large kiwi, that one piece of fruit can ward off harmful bacteria and strengthen the collagen network within the gums. Kiwi eaters also tend to have whiter teeth. Amazing! Kiwis bring out the best in everyone whether they have traditional braces or don the more versatile invisalign, teeth shine brighter when it comes to kiwi! To find out more about what you can do for your smile, schedule an appointment with Dr. Nease at Higginbotham Orthodontics to bring your smile to its full potential!
