If you’re interested in keeping your teeth and gums in top-notch condition, then you need to keep up on oral hygiene and visit your dentist, Dr. Mike Choe, every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. You can also make yourself a tooth-friendly lunch each day. This is easier than it might sound. In fact, our dental team can help you! All you need to do are the following things:

-Pack things with calcium: Calcium is a great mineral that can help you have strong teeth and bones. In fact, it can even strengthen your jawbone, which is the bone that holds your teeth. So, make sure to incorporate things like milk, cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products in your lunch.

-Pack things with vitamin C: Vitamin C can help strengthen the connective tissues in the mouth, which means it can help the gums! We can’t forget about those. Your teeth need your gums to remain healthy and strong. So, do your best to pack things like oranges or red peppers in your lunch.

-Pack things with protein: Protein can help you keep your tooth enamel resilient. So, don’t forget to pack things like whole-wheat sandwiches with chicken, ham, or turkey.
