Yes, you have heard it before! Just as your Riverside dentist explains, you require calcium. You need it for your body. You need it for strong teeth. The list goes on an on. While you probably don’t have anything against calcium, your knowledge may end at “it’s good for you.” Since we are quite familiar with the fact that this is often the case, we strongly encourage you to take our suggestions seriously, so you can rest easy knowing you’re doing your best to keep teeth super strong.

Eat Your Broccoli

You should eat your broccoli, your kale, your dairy, your beans, your sardines, and the details continue. Did you know that you don’t need to rush to the vitamin shop to get your calcium? Take a look online for specifics regarding foods high in calcium and then ensure you incorporate them into your diet. That way, your Riverside dentist explains, you’re giving your body what it needs (and the natural approach to getting vitamins and minerals always takes priority).

Don’t Rule Out Other Options

Maybe you happen to have a penchant for some foods that aren’t quite so naturally full of calcium but that can protect your oral health because they have it added. For instance, grab cereal, juice, and other products that are fortified and you will help complete your daily dose (about 1,000 mg give or take). While we don’t encourage you to get all of your calcium this way, you can also add in supplements if you’re not quite hitting the mark! Your Riverside dentist explains that your approach will likely be completely unique for your own needs.
