Make sure you’re getting enough calcium in your diet, it can help strengthen your tooth’s enamel.

Calcium assists in making your teeth stronger by helping to remineralize tooth structure. However, calcium also needs phosphorus and vitamin D to maximise its bone strengthening benefits. A healthy diet containing calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D (which can assist in absorption and regulate the balance in your body) is essential for healthy teeth.


Here are some healthy foods to consider:


-Leafy greens
-Poppy, sesame and chia seeds
-Brown rice
-Cabbage, beans and broccoli


Vitamin D
-Some cereals
-Canned tuna, salmon, sardines
-Fortified soy milk


-Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
-Whole grains
-Meat, poultry, fish, seafood
-Beans and lentils
-Grapes and tomatoes
