Food is a key factor when we talk about oral health and there are a number of foods that help prevent oral diseases.

Incorporating fish into your diet is essential. Blue fish oils such as salmon and foods rich in omega-3 unsaturated fats favour bone development and maintenance.

In addition, fruit is the recommended dessert option. For example, blueberries contain antioxidant polyphenols which are known to help in the prevention of periodontal diseases thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. Likewise kiwis contain a high concentration of vitamin C which can help regenerate the collagen of periodontal tissues and reduce infections. Grapes are another useful fruit containing polyphenols that can promote oral health.

Lastly, green tea is known to protect teeth and periodontal tissues.
