According to the American Medical Association, up to forty percent of teeth and gum diseases can be prevented through the ingestion of fruits and vegetables that are teeth friendly. The use of braces has seen an increase over the last five years in children as a result of fruits that are harmful to their teeth. While it is recommended to par regular visits to an orthodontist, the prescription will almost always be a recommendation to have a lifestyle that encourages fruits like oranges and vegetables that are not only nutritious, but also beneficial to the growth of teeth.
Health Benefits of Oranges
Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C. They are also a very good source of dietary fiber. In addition, oranges are a good source of B vitamins including vitamin B1, pantothenic acid, and folate as well as vitamin A, calcium, copper, and potassium
Early teeth problems can be corrected through the use of invisalign aligners. Orthodontists usually recommend the use of an invisalign in cases where the condition has been detected at an early stage. The working of an invisalign is more or less the same as that of braces with the difference being that the former allows one to have their teeth straightened in the absence of metallic braces. It is highly recommended to visit an orthodontist regularly.
