Eat Detergent Foods

WW4-BeecroftWords of Wisdom No.4 - Eat 'detergent’ foods

The Orthodontist in Stafford and the King George Ortho recommend that people make an appointment to see their dentists two (2) times per year. This is mandatory to prevent dental problems. However, there are other options that reduce cavities and tooth decay. Those options are available in your cupboards and refrigerator shelves. Detergent foods are the perfect preventative food. Let's take a closer look.

Two Types of Food

There are two food groups. The food groups are detergent foods and fatty foods. The average American diet is filled with fatty foods. Fatty foods are very attractive to the taste buds, but they are also responsible for destroying the teeth and causing cavities. Some examples include:

  • cookies
  • candy
  • pastries
  • fast foods
  • ice cream
  • beef
  • pork

What are Detergent Foods?

The next time that you make a run to the store, don't forget the detergent foods. Many are baffled by that term. They ask, "what are detergent foods." Detergent foods are certain foods that are beneficial for the teeth. Those food's crunchy texture, clean the teeth and remove debris. The detergent foods play a part in preventing tooth decay. Some examples include: apples, carrots, cucumbers, pears, celery, lettuce, and more.

How to Consume More Detergent Foods

The first step is to take a look in your cupboards and refrigerator. Time to go cold turkey. Get rid of all the fatty foods. Throw used food in the trash. Donate canned goods to a local charity. Next, stock the cupboards and refrigerator with detergent foods. Those foods are readily available at the supermarket. Start with a few crisp lettuce, zucchini, onions, cucumbers, carrots, celery, and pears. Snack on the detergent foods and add them to your scheduled daily meals.
