How to Remineralize Your Teeth

As we move through life, our teeth go through a lot – they are certainly busy, with all the talking, chewing, and brushing going on. Remineralizing your teeth is one way in which you can level up, and better the future of your teeth and jaw. It sounds like a fancy, expensive procedure… But it’s not. It doesn’t take much to remineralize your teeth. In fact, remineralizing your teeth is a simple process that will only require a few small changes to your oral health care routine – but assured, it can make a huge difference.

How to Remineralize Your Teeth

Remineralizing Teeth: What it means

Teeth contain minerals, and it’s one of the keys to their strength. When your body (or diet) lacks important building blocks like calcium, it can often show in the appearance of your teeth.

Remineralizing teeth is a way to introduce essential minerals to your teeth. Naturally, remineralizing is great for teeth, bones, and your immune system.

Why Remineralize?

A lack of the right minerals in your diet can affect your body and oral hygiene in many negative ways. When you bring essential minerals back such as calcium and phosphate, your teeth have the ability to become stronger – and they are less likely to degrade, crack, or break when subjected to physical stress or strain.

Dental issues can be the cause of other health problems, too. For example, dental health has a direct link to the health of your heart.

With healthier teeth, better heart and bone health is almost a guarantee for your future.

How to Remineralize Your Teeth

1. Change Your Diet

Most of the minerals we have in our bodies come from our diet. Yet, most diets are not enough to sustain all the minerals that you need. Change your diet, and choose nutrient-rich foods over quick snacks. Improving dental health starts with your diet.

2. Change Your Toothpaste

Forget expensive health treatments, and start by changing your toothpaste. Choose a type of toothpaste that contains added minerals. Also, choose toothpaste for sensitive teeth even if you do not yet have sensitive teeth. Sensitive toothpaste can often contain even more of the “good stuff”, beneficial for your oral health.

3. Brush (But Not Too Often)

It remains important to brush, but the real truth about the health of your teeth is almost the opposite of what most people believe. While it’s a good idea to brush your teeth regularly, it’s not necessary to brush after every meal. In fact, brushing your teeth too frequently can strip your teeth of the minerals that it needs the most in order to have healthy teeth.

4. Avoid Sugar (Yes, That’s True!)

Sugar (and a diet high in foods and drinks that contain it) increase the levels of bad bacteria in your mouth. Sugary foods and drinks can eat away at building blocks – and drop the natural mineral content of your teeth, automatically weakening what’s left. Avoid fruit juices high in sugar, opt for sugar-free gum, and be more conscious about your food/drink choices in order to improve your oral health.

He was fortunate to find Dr. Dan Ellingson who is a wonderful, gentle dentist. Dr. Ellingson is a local graduate of Gross High School, UNO, and UNMC College of Dentistry.
