From teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, men and women are undergoing smile makeover procedures in time for holiday festivities. Many of the patients I see express their desire to undergo a total makeover – including facial rejuvenation and body contouring surgery. At this point, I am often asked if I would recommend any doctors for such procedures.

Prevent Tooth Decay with the Right Foods

Eating right can help you stay healthy and trim; furthermore, the right foods can be of great benefit to prevent tooth decay and maintain a beautiful smile. We all know that staying away from sugary treats is the best thing we can do, but which foods can actually strengthen our teeth? Check out the following list of foods and their beneficial attributes:

  • Calcium – Milk, yogurt, and cheese are excellent sources of calcium, which can help prevent tooth decay in all individuals. Children can especially benefit from calcium intake as their teeth are still developing. Other sources of calcium include broccoli, bok choy, Brazil nuts, almonds, canned fish with bones, and dried beans.
  • Fruit, Fiber and Veggies – The high-fiber foods can keep saliva flowing. This can greatly help create mineral defenses against tooth decay. Dried fruits such as figs, dates, and raisins, as well as fresh fruits, including apples, bananas and oranges, are great sources of fiber. Peanuts, almonds, beans, Brussels sprouts, and bran are also high in fiber.
  • Whole Grains – To keeps gums healthy, B vitamins and iron in whole grains are the way to go. Additionally, they are chock full of fiber. Magnesium is also in whole grains, which is important for bones and teeth. Whole-grain pasta and cereals, brown rice, and bran are great sources of whole grains as well.

As much as we are told to watch what we eat and do our best to take care of our teeth, there are times that no matter what we do we may end up with some dental problems. However, should your teeth need to be removed due to decay and/or gum disease, you have options! Dental implants can help you restore a full set of teeth and provide you with a beautiful smile. A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root that holds a replacement tooth (crown). Because it is integrated in the jawbone, these implants are durable and long-lasting. These are often used as a replacement for removable dentures as well.

Orthodontic Treatment for Kids

How a person’s teeth turn out in adulthood is greatly based on the care they received during the developmental years. This is why it is extremely important for parents to take their children to a qualified dentist and/or orthodontist at the necessary time. Usually, children should see a dentist by their first birthday in order to ensure that their teeth are coming in correctly and are healthy. It is also recommended that children maintain a routine check-up with their dental provider in order to help monitor any changes.

One of the most important steps in achieving a beautiful, straight smile later on in life is undergoing the appropriate orthodontic treatments when needed. Dental braces can often help children’s teeth grow properly and prevent future alignment problems. Typically, children around the age of seven may be ideal candidates for dental braces. During this time, the child’s bone structure is still easily manipulated in order to ensure a straight smile in a shorter time frame. However, please be sure to note that not all children need braces; this is determined during a consultation after careful and thorough examination.

As an experienced Beverly Hills orthodontist, I evaluate every patient individually and create a personalized treatment plan. This allows every patient to achieve his/her ideal outcome. I encourage you to visit my website to learn more regarding orthodontic treatments for yourself as well as your children.
