Foods for healthy teeth and gums

With a healthy diet, we will not only maintain physical health, but also the health of teeth and gums. We present foods that benefit teeth and gums and contribute to the health of your oral cavity.

Foods that contribute to the health of teeth and gums:

  • Apples– contain a lot of vitamin C, which works against inflammation of the gums.

  • Paprika – carotene in the red colored vegetable keeps the mucous membrane in the mouth healthy.

  • Spinach – green vegetables such as spinach form a short-term protective film over the teeth that protects against staining, such as from tea or red wine.

  • Cabbage– contains vitamin K and potassium for the jaw bones, and vitamin K also inhibits the acid production of caries bacteria.

  • Natural yogurt or kefir – contains calcium to strengthen bones, and lactic acid bacteria reduce plaque and prevent inflammation.

  • Hard cheese – in addition to its high calcium content, hard cheese creates a slightly greasy protection on the teeth that neutralizes caries bacteria.

  • Cranberries – they contain polyphenols (just like tea), which prevents plaque from building up on tooth enamel. Important: Because cranberries are very acidic, sugar is often added to them, which makes them less beneficial for the health of our teeth and gums.

  • Sea fish – they are a good source of vitamin D, which contributes to strong teeth and jaw bones.

  • Nuts – Contains important elements such as calcium and phosphorus that contribute to healthy teeth and gums. By nibbling on almonds, pistachios and walnuts, you prevent bacteria that cause tooth decay.

  • Onions – raw onions are antibacterial and help fight against the evil bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.

  • Peppermint tea– suitable for gargling with inflammation in the oral cavity and toothache. Pour two teaspoons of fresh leaves with a cup of water

  • Chewing fennel seeds – freshens breath. Fennel herb with high phosphorus content keeps teeth healthy.

A healthy oral mucosa is the first defense against the entry of viruses and bacteria into our organism, so it definitely makes sense to eat foods that have a beneficial effect on the health of the oral mucosa.

Food for healthy teeth and gums will help and support us in maintaining healthy teeth and gums, which can prevent many dental problems and diseases. In addition to proper nutrition, proper oral hygiene is also very important.

We keep our teeth healthy by regular brushing and flossing. In this way, we get rid of food particles that, with the help of bacteria, would start to form dental plaque, which forms acid, which destroys the enamel and causes other diseases of the teeth and gums.

CBCT/3D slikanje čeljusti

Aparat zajame več posameznih posnetkov (prerezov) določenega predela in jih združi v celoto. Na ta način dobimo 3D prikaz, torej ne samo višino in širino, temveč tudi globino. CBCT posnetki se uporabljajo v primerih načrtovanja bolj kompliciranih kirurških posegov, kot so vstavljanje implantatov, komplicirane odstranitve cist in neizrazlih modrostnikov, sum na skrite prelomne čeljusti ipd.

RVG lokalni posnetek

Če želimo bolj natančno sliko določenega predela z veliko natančnih detajlov, naredim RVG lokalni posnetek s katerim zajamemo področje 1-2 zoba, posamzeno razpoko, plombo ali granulom.

Ortopan posnetek

Pri prvem pregledu pacienta v našem centru obvezno naredimo ortopantomagrski posnetek (ortopan). S tem posnetkom zajamemo področje obeh čeljusti in sosednjih tkiv in struktur. Zato je ortopan odličen za ugotovaljanje začetnega stanja pred načrtovanjem nadaljnega zdravljenja. Odličen je tudi za občasne kontrole zdravja ustne votline
