Do you have Strong Teeth?

Many people come in to my office and ask me “How I can get strong teeth?” The answer is “YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!” It’s no different than if you want a strong body! If you feed your body with processed foods and fast foods or any of that other junk, the chances are your body is going to be WEAK. If you eat healthy, consuming foods that come from a farm, then generally your body and immune system will be strong!

It’s no different for your teeth — eat healthy to have strong teeth! Coke, Pepsi and many other soft drinks have an acidity level around 2.5 on the scale from 0-14 with 7 being neutral. Tooth erosion starts to happen at a pH of 5.5. You might as well just open up that flashlight and eat the battery — pH of 1.
