Did your parents ever tell you to drink milk for stronger bones? That’s because your parents knew that milk has calcium in it. But strong bones aren’t the only thing calcium is good for.
Calcium plays an essential role in our oral health because just like it helps to strengthen bones, it helps to strengthen the enamel on our teeth.
Calcium and your tooth enamel
Every person has billions of bacteria in their mouth. Bacteria enter the mouth with food and drink, creating harmful substances that attack our tooth enamel.
The weakening of our tooth enamel that bacteria causes can lead to cavities, tooth decay, and even gum disease.
But the intake of enough calcium isn’t the only defence we have against poor oral health.
Dental hygiene also plays a vital role in protecting your teeth and gums. Remember: brush and floss twice daily, and go to your regular cleaning checkups.
