As your Jacksonville, Florida dentist, Dr. Tiffany Shields wants you to have the healthiest smile possible. While most people understand that calcium is a vital component of a young person’s diet, it is important to keep up with your calcium intake throughout your life.
Calcium is a mineral generally found in bones and teeth, so in order to maintain a healthy mouth and body, calcium is a required component of everyone’s diet. Drinking milk on a regular basis provides most people with the calcium required to keep their bones and teeth strong, however for those that don’t drink milk there are several other options including yogurt, cheese, pudding, dark leafy vegetables, juices, and many more.
Dr. Shields is always looking for ways to improve your smile naturally. Even if you don’t include milk in your regular diet, there are several alternatives available to keep your teeth and bones strong and healthy.
