Teeth are not just an expression of our vitality, but of our internal development. When a child's permanent teeth come in, it is an important step on the path to adulthood.

Nutrition for healthy teeth

Caring for the teeth starts with healthy eating habits, especially for children. For example, sugar is a favourite food source for caries bacteria. You should therefore reduce the amount of sweets consumed by your child. Besides regular dental hygiene, a balanced and varied diet is important for preventing tooth decay, as this provides the teeth with all the essential nutrients they need for healthy growth. By chewing thoroughly and cutting back on acid-forming foods such as white sugar, meat and white flour, you can help maintain the basic pH level of the saliva. And this in turn contributes to the health of your teeth, because plaque-forming bacteria thrive in an acidic environment.
