How Does Fiber Improve Your Oral Health?Many people value their attractive smile and their healthy teeth are a major asset to their career. Having a healthy mouth has shown to increase the odds of finding romantic partners and earning a higher paycheck. Maintaining a healthy diet that is filled with natural high-fiber food has been shown to reduce the odds of tooth loss by roughly 30 percent.

Reasons to Make Sure Fiber is Part of Your Diet

U.S. researchers have studied the oral health of over 600 men that are veterans for nearly twenty-five years. The older men who had a diet that consisted of eating fiber-packed food like bananas, apples, oranges, and whole grains. Showed higher oral health benefits.

They had a thirty percent lower rate of tooth loss and twenty percent lower risk of bone loss from diseases like receding gums. Many other studies show lower risks of gum diseases, jawbone diseases, and overall tooth health.

Other Benefits of Fiber-Rich Diet

A diet that is high in fiber is also associated with healthy weight loss or weight control. By managing your diet and your weight, it helps your oral health. Studies show that adults and children who struggle with obesity also have a higher risk of oral health problems.

There was a study conducted by the Scientists at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. It reported that heavier adults are much higher at risk for the development of forms of periodontal disease than other adults that weighed less.

The benefits of simply adding some fiber to your diet will increase your physical health as well as your oral health. Start snacking on fiber throughout the day for an oral boost. For more tips, or further information. Call us today, we are happy to assist with your oral health care.
