You probably already know that your diet affects your dental health. Eating right and avoiding things like soda and other sugary drinks can reduce your risk of tooth decay and cavities. But how much does your diet matter? For example, is it better for your dental health if you choose organic food? In this blog from Digital Dental Studio, we’ll discuss everything that you need to know.
The primary benefit of organic foods is that they are free from pesticides and other additives, and are more wholesome. Many people who eat organic food also simply enjoy the flavor and taste of organic foods compared to their non-organic counterparts. However, these are not the only benefits.
Studies have suggested that organic food actually is more nutritious, too. Organic milk, for example, was found to have a higher calcium content than non-organic milk, and some organic fruits and vegetables were found to have 20% more vitamin C compared to non-organic foods.
This means that by choosing organic food, you may be able to get more overall nutrition from what you eat compared to non-organic food. In turn, higher amounts of nutrients like vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin D can contribute directly to healthier teeth and gums.
So, organic food often has more nutritional benefits than non-organic food, and it also has the benefit of being free of potentially dangerous pesticides and other additives. But what organic foods are the best for your mouth? Here are a few tips and recommendations from Digital Dental Studio.
