SV Dental discusses the benefits of keeping dairy in your diet.
PAOLI, PA, May 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Milk goes great with cookies. And where would cereal be without good ol' milk? It's the drink of choice for the majority Americans (unless you are lactose intolerant). Milk is also labeled as the state food for Pennsylvania. Why is this important to the staff at SV Dental? There are dental benefits to drinking milk.
Milk Neutralizes Cavity-Causing Acid
Milk does more than just build strong bones. By drinking milk, a patient is helping remove excess food particles as well as neutralizing acid caused by bacteria.
The nutrients in milk, Vitamin D, calcium and phosphates, are what really buffers the acid found in a person's mouth, and milk helps rebuild the enamel in the process.
The more milk a person drinks, the more calcium he/she will add to his/her diet. Milk is an important part of a person's daily diet, and besides promoting stronger enamel, the correct serving of calcium is good for the body. But milk is only healthy as long as a person doesn't consume more than the recommended daily value.
Find out how to count your daily dairy intake by going to www.choosemyplate.gov.
And remember to pair milk with sugary and acidic foods to counteract them and prevent further acid erosion.
What happens when acid breaks down the enamel? Once the enamel becomes weak to acid, you will know tooth decay has already begun, and it won't stop there. Breaking down the enamel leads to plaque bacteria entering through the tooth to the pulp (nerve).
Do you think plaque bacteria and acid has caught up to you? Let our Paoli dentist office know by calling (610) 296-7797. Or go to www.svdental.com to set up an appointment.
