  Teeth are hard and bone like but they are very much alive and need to be well nourished to stay healthy. It is very important to find nutritious foods to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Along with good cleaning you need to eat foods that contain calcium and vitamins A and C. You should also keep from eating to much sugary, sticky snacks which make it easy for bacteria to flourish and cause cavities. If you can you should brush your teeth and tongue at least twice a day.
 

 Your bones need calcium to stay strong so do your teeth. Calcium rich foods are extremely important to keep your teeth from becoming loose and strengthen the bones the hold the teeth in place. You need to get as much dairy products as you can. A glass of low fat milk or a serving of yogurt contain about three hundred milligrams of calcium.
 

 You need more then just calcium including vitamins A and C. The body uses vitamin C to make collagen a tough protein fiber that keeps your gums strong. Vitamin A is used to form dentin a bonelike material just beneath the surface of the teeth. It is easy to get these nutrients in your diet. You can get vitamin A by eating food high in beta carotene which is converted to vitamin A. Good sources are sweet potatoes, kale, carrots.
 

 The foods that are not good for the teeth are foods that contain a lot of sugar. The produce large amounts of bacteria that thrive in the mouth. In the long run the bacteria and acids are like drills on the outside of the teeth. They wear away at the tooth and help cavities to form. Even a healthy choice like fruit juices can cause problems so you need to make sure its sugar free. Research has shown that grapefruit and apple juice can cause the most damage.
 

 Dental research has shown the sticky foods can be a big problem for your dental health. They make it easy for bacteria to stay in the mouth for long periods of time. You don't need to give up the occasional snack just make sure to brush after eating or use a mouth wash. You can simple rinse your mouth with water which will help remove the bacteria before it takes hold. make sure you chew your food up this produces saliva which washes away sugar from the teeth.
 Saliva also contains calcium and phosphorus which helps neutralize tooth damaging acids that are in the mouth after eating. Dental health research has shown that if you eat a little cheese it helps to prevent tooth decay.
