Oral Friendly Breakfast: Try Some Oral-Enhancing Baked Egg Muffins

Priscilla Hansen

You probably already start your day with an oral care regimen, but should your oral care stop there? The following breakfast could be a useful addition to your oral health. This is due to the dental-friendly ingredients in the recipe.

Oral-Enhancing Ingredients In Your Egg Muffins

Sea Salt

The first ingredient you need to pay attention to is sea salt. Sea salt is different from regular table salt because it has not been altered or filtered. That means sea salt is still filled with several minerals that your body needs. One part of sea salt that is helpful is the natural fluoride content. You have probably heard of fluoride, as it is a popular ingredient in toothpaste and mouthwash.

This type of fluoride is natural and strong and should help form a layer of protection against bacterial attacks on your teeth.

Aged Cheese

The recipe also calls for cheese, but you should try to use aged cheese, like Gouda. The recipe can work with any type of cheese you want, but aged cheese contains vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is often overlooked but is very helpful to your teeth. The reason is your body uses vitamin K2 like a searchlight. Vitamin K2 identifies areas in your body that need calcium, like in your teeth, and helps recalcify those areas.

Properly mineralized teeth may better withstand bacterial attacks that could lead to dental erosion or cavities.

Cauliflower

The last ingredient in this recipe you should pay attention to is the cauliflower. Cauliflower contains a good amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C is usually associated with your immune system, but it is also essential for your gums and teeth. The reason is your body requires vitamin C to create collagen. Collagen is the special protein your body uses to make connective tissues that make up most of your body, including your gums and teeth.

So cauliflower will help make your gums and teeth stronger and ready to fend off bacterial attacks better.

Remember that these ingredients are only meant to help prevent dental ailments, not cure them. Leave the curing to your dental care specialist, and if you specific questions about maintaining healthier teeth and gums, talk to a professional like Jeffrey S. Thaller DMD.
