For a healthy smile and lifestyle, try to think about the foods and drinks you consume. What are you putting into your body? If you place sugars and sweets, you increase your risk for cavities and diabetes. By consuming healthy foods like vegetables and proteins, you boost your health and the health of your smile.

Foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, and fat-free dairy foods can help keep your teeth healthy and strong as well as provide a healthier body for yourself too.
