making smile incredible


You've probably heard the expression "you are what you eat," and this is especially true for your teeth and gums. The bacteria in your mouth that cause tooth decay and gum disease love those starchy or sugary foods we enjoy.

The difference between a healthy smile and frequent dental visits is largely determined by your diet. Even with a good oral hygiene routine (brushing twice a day, flossing once a day), keeping your teeth healthy in the long run can be difficult.

You've probably heard the saying, "You are what you eat," and your teeth and gums are no exception. These starchy or sweet meals are particularly beloved by the oral bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay.

Your diet has a significant role in determining whether you have a healthy smile or need frequent dental work. Long-term tooth health can be challenging, even with a decent oral hygiene regimen (brushing twice daily, flossing once daily).

·           Vegetables (broccoli, carrot, Spinach)

·           Fruits (oranges and apples, pears)

·           Nuts (walnuts and almonds)

·           Cranberries and Raisins (Fresh or Sugar-Free)

·           Seeds (pumpkin seeds and flax seeds). 

·           Cheese, Milk, and Yogurt

·           Water

The best way to consume this meal is uncooked. Food that hasn't been cooked or treated retains all of its natural nutrients. They massage your teeth and gums, strengthen and keep your teeth brighter when you chew them in their raw state.

Meals and beverages that are bad for your health and that will make your teeth look pale and unclean include:

  •  Steer clear of sugary meals, which are particularly damaging to teeth and gums. If the sugar is not eliminated, it can attach to the teeth and gums and result in plaque and cavities.
  • Avoid starchy meals as well because they can lead to plaque and cavities if they stay to your teeth and gums. The possibility for injury is increased if starchy foods are left in the mouth for a long time.
  • Soft drinks can damage teeth because the acid in them can "eat" away at the enamel and the sugar in them can lead to tooth decay.

These are some foods that can help in whitening your teeth. However, you must add wholesome and fibrous foods to your daily diet for overall oral health that includes white teeth and stronger gums. Also, drink a lot of water as it helps in washing away acid-producing foods from your mouth that can stain your teeth.

What is Cleft lip?

The fourth to seventh weeks of pregnancy are when the lip develops. When the growing facial tissues of an unborn infant don't completely close, it results in a cleft lip, which is an opening or split in the top lip. A little slit or a wide aperture that extends from the lip into the nose can be present in the lip. A cleft lip can develop on one, both, or even both sides of the lip, as well as very infrequently, in the middle of the lip. A cleft lip and palate can coexist in children.

What is Cleft Palate?

Between the sixth and ninth weeks of pregnancy, the palate (the roof of the mouth) begins to develop. When the tissue doesn't fuse together when the baby is developing in the womb, it results in an opening or split in the roof of the mouth.

Other Problems:  Children with a cleft lip with or without a cleft palate or a cleft palate alone often have problems such as:

  1.  Difficulty with feedings.
  2. Difficulty swallowing, with the potential for liquids or foods to come out of the nose
  3. Nasal speaking voice or not able to speak clearly
  4. Chronic ear infections
  5. Dental problems.

Ratio: The most prevalent birth malformations are cleft lip and cleft palate. It is generally agreed that one in 1,000 births will result in cleft lip and palate. Nonetheless, socioeconomic status, geographic origin, and ethnic background all have a significant impact on its occurrence.

Causes and Risk Factors:


Most cases of cleft lip and cleft palate are caused by an interaction of genetic and environmental factors. In many babies, a definite cause isn't discovered.

Risk Factors: There are a number of risk factors that can raise a baby's chance of having cleft lip and cleft palate, including

  1. Family History: Having a child with cleft lip or palate is more likely for parents who have a history of the condition.
  2.  Diabetes: Compared to women who did not have diabetes, women who were diagnosed with the disease prior to becoming pregnant had an increased risk of having a child with a cleft palate.
  3.  The use of specific medications increases the chance of birth abnormalities, such as cleft lips and palates. These medications are prescribed to treat or prevent seizures.
  4. Smoking or Alcohol: Women who smoke or drink alcohol are more likely to have baby with cleft compared to women who do not smoke or drink alcohol.

When to see a doctor?

A cleft lip and cleft palate are usually noticed at birth, and your doctor may start coordinating care at that time. To correct the condition, you will likely work with a team involving a plastic surgeon, maxillofacial surgeon, otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat specialist), general dentist, orthodontist, and oral surgeon.
