At Schindler Dentistry, we care about you. We strive to include your overall health into your dental treatment. Studies have indicated there’s a health connection between the mouth and body where the bacteria from periodontal disease can harm other parts of your body, increasing your risk for serious illnesses including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and much more.
Having a healthy diet can make a significant impact on your oral health just as much as brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist in Columbus, Ohio, regularly. Nutrients such as protein, vitamin A, C, and D nourish your entire body including your teeth. It can be difficult to incorporate all these nutrients into your daily diet, but luckily, there are countless recipe blogs on the Internet to get the juices flowing. One particular blogger, Gaby Dalkin, creates excellent healthy meals to get all your nutrients in one package.
Cucumber, Herb, and Pita Salad
If you are in the need for green, this one-of-kind salad will refresh your taste buds. This healthy treat contains cucumbers, celery, chopped mint, Parmesan cheese, whole wheat pita, and avocado. Learn how to craft this zesty treat by reading Gaby Dalkin’s blog entry.
How is it good for your teeth?
Your teeth will thank you for including this salad. The green vegetables are crunchy, which massages your gums, cleans your teeth, and generates saliva flow. Saliva can wash away food debris caught between teeth while neutralizing tooth-damaging acids. They also have high water content, which offsets sugar content.
A healthy diet beckons for a healthy smile! Not only will you feel good about yourself, your smile will feel and look great!
