Dairy & My Child’s Oral Health

Hendersonville Dentist Discusses Child’s Oral Health..

Healthy eating, combined with regular physical activity, plays a vital role in your child’s health and well-being. Dairy foods are naturally nutritious, packed with ten essential nutrients that help your child feel good for life. Did you also know that dairy is also great for your child’s dental health? Our team at Hendersonville Family Dentistry will tell you that, in addition to providing large amounts of much needed calcium, dairy products also help fight cavities.

Dairy products contain unique combination of special anti-decay nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, and the protein, casein. Cheese is especially useful, as eating a small piece of cheese after consuming sugary foods or drinks can help protect teeth and reduce the risk of tooth decay.
