nutrition and dental problems / nutrisi dan masalah gigi

Everyone knows that a proper nutrition diet is essential to healthy living. Proper nutrition means eating a balanced diet so your body can get the nutrients needed for good health. Every day, your body renews itself, building new muscle, bone, skin and blood. The foods you eat provide the building blocks for these new tissues. If your diet is low in the nutrients your body needs, your mouth may have a more difficult time resisting infection. In fact, if your nutrition is poor, the first signs often show up in your oral health.

A balanced diet consists of the following nutrients:

  • Some carbohydrates
  • The essential fatty acids (found in fats)
  • The essential amino acids (found in proteins)
  • 15 vitamins
  • Approximately twenty-five minerals
  • Water

Foods high in sugars are “sticky”, stay on the teeth longer and allow bacteria more time to grow. The bacteria will produce acid which attack tooth enamel and forming a cavity. If you must eat foods high in sugars, try to eat them during meals rather than between meals, and avoid any foods that stick to your teeth as these can produce more plaque. Sugar containing drinks,such as soda, lemonade, juice and sweetened coffee or tea (iced or hot)—are particularly harmful because sipping them causes a constant sugar bath over teeth, which promotes tooth decay.

Cheese, milk, plain yogurt, calcium-fortified tofu, leafy greens and almonds, are foods that may benefit tooth health thanks to their high amounts of calcium and other nutrients they provide. Protein-rich foods like meat, poultry, fish, milk and eggs are the best sources of phosphorus. Both of these minerals play a critical role in dental health, by protecting and rebuilding tooth enamel.

Fruits and vegetables are good choices for a healthy smile since they are high in water and fiber, which balance the sugars they contain and help to clean the teeth. These foods also help stimulate saliva production, which washes harmful acids and food particles away from teeth and helps neutralize acid, protecting teeth from decay. Plus, many contain vitamin C (important for healthy gums and quick healing of wounds) and vitamin A (another key nutrient in building tooth enamel). Water—particularly fluoridated water—is the most tooth-friendly beverage.

Setiap orang mengetahui bahwa makanan bergii merupakan kunci dari hidup sehat. Makanan bergizi berarti memakan makanan yang seimbang unutk memenuhi kebutuhan tubuh. Setiap hari, tubuh membutuhkan nutrisi untuk memperbaharui otot-otot, tulang, kulit, dan darah. Apabila tubuh kurang nutrisi makan maka tubuh rentan terhadap infeksi. Tanda-tanda infeksi pertama kali dapat terlihat dalam rongga mulut.

Nutrisi seimbang mengandung : beberapa macam karbohidrat, asam lemak, asam amino, vitamin, mineral dan air.

Makanan yang mengandung banyak gula akan melekat pada gigi dan bertahan lebih lama dalam mulut sehingga bakteri berkembang lebih banyak menyerang enamel gigi dan menyebabkan gigi berlubang. Apabila anda ingin makan makanan yang mengandung gula cobalah untuk makan saat sedang makan besar untuk mencegah perlekatan gula pada gigi. Minuman yang mengandung banyak gula seperti soda, lemon, juice, teh dan kopi dengan banyak gula dapat menyebabkan gigi berlubang.

Keju, susu, yogurt tanpa gula, tahu, sayuran dan kacang almond merupakan makanan yang bermanfaat untuk gigi karena mengandung kalsium dan nutrisi yang dibutuhkan oleh tubuh. Makanan yang mengandung banyak protein seperti daging, ikan, dan telur merupakan sumber phospat yang dibutuhkan oleh gigi untuk memperkuat enamel.

Buah-buahan dan sayur-sayuran mengandung banyak fiber dan menstimulasi produksi air ludah yang dapat membersihkan gigi dari makanan dan menjaga gigi dari kerusakan. Makanan yang mengandung vitamin C dan vitamin A baik untuk mempercepat penyembuhan luka dan nutrisi untuk enamel.
