Did you know you can make your teeth stronger? Teeth seem pretty hard already, but that can be deceptive when you consider how much use teeth go through on your average day. If your teeth are not as strong and healthy as they could be, you can easily chip or fracture them, this can lead to cuts, more breaks, and infections. Your teeth can also get weak with age, just like everything else, and you will need to have better oral care so they are fortified and healthy.

Get your vitamins

Teeth need nutrition, lifestyle choices play a huge role in your vitamin intake. If you live in cold climates, or otherwise have limited access to quality vegetables and fruits, you can also run low on vitamins.
Some vitamins used for healthy teeth include:
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
These vitamins are commonly found in most multivitamins. More doctors are recommending you take a multivitamin daily to ensure you have sufficient vitamins and minerals in your system. Lots of people also tend to choose multivitamin gummies, as opposed to solid tablets. Solid tablets tend to be much more consistent in dose, gummies are prone to either having too much, or too little of the dose stated due to the nature of the pill.

Use Fluoride Dental Products

Fluoride has been medically proven to have huge benefits for the health of your teeth. Some municipal districts have even taken to adding small amounts of fluoride to their local drinking water. If you know you don’t drink enough water, mainly drink bottled water, or have a diet that could be improved, then more fluoride may benefit you. Although too much fluoride can also be an issue, you should ask your dentist before increasing your fluoride intake and try not to swallow the toothpaste.

Eat a more balanced diet

The bacteria in your mouth tend to really love carbs, after they digest them they also secret an acid that is damaging to your enamel. Carb-rich food is often harder to clean from your mouth since things like candies and bread get stuck between your teeth easily. This can lead to plaque and tartar build-up happening much faster. A more balanced diet, for most people, also means more fruits and vegetables, this will help you build up enough vitamins to keep your teeth healthy. You may also lower the chances of them breaking if you lower your intake of harder foods.

Keep hydrated

Your mouth needs to stay hydrated just like the rest of your body, if you experience dry mouth on a regular basis, you might want to consider drinking more water. More water means your body will have a sufficient supply for saliva production. Saliva helps food to digest in the mouth, food that is digested more will be less likely to be caught in your teeth.

Try taking probiotics

Probiotics can be useful for fortifying your teeth. However, to fortify your teeth, you’ll want to make sure your choosing strains are already naturally produced in the mouth. If you do implement this strategy you’ll have a better chance at adding beneficial strains to your system.

Strains that are considered beneficial to your teeth are:

  • Bifidobacterium
  • Reuteri
  • Rhamnosus
  • Salivarius
Before taking any new probiotic, we highly recommend talking to your doctor first. If you want to look for natural sources of probiotics.

Have better oral care

This is pretty straight forward, a better oral routine will decrease the amount of acid build-up, as well as plaque and tartar. Having stellar dental hygiene will also get help to deter tooth decay. If your teeth get cavities then there enamel is permanently destroyed and will need fillings, crowns, or even more extreme measures depending on the decay.

To make sure your getting the most from dental hygiene routine, follow these steps:

  • Floss – Floss each tooth and make sure to spend no less than 30 seconds on each quarter of your mouth.
  • Brush – Brush each quarter of your mouth for 30 sec, apply a moderate amount of pressure, and make sure to softly brush the gums and tongue afterward.
  • Mouthwash – Take a dose of mouth wash and swish it around your mouth for 30-60 sec.


  • If you replace your brush every 2 months or so, it can drastically improve the effectiveness of your routine.
  • Also try specialty products like whitening or fluoride pastes and washes to gain extra benefit.

Bonus Tip – Wear Mouthguards for protection

A mouthguard won’t fortify the minerals in your teeth, but it can protect your teeth from unnecessary trauma. If you play sports that have contact, you lift weights, or you know you grind your teeth at night, you should absolutely wear a mouthguard, preferably a custom mouthgaurd to add even more protection.

Outlook of strengthening your teeth

In regards to dentistry, prevention is always better than the cure for dental issues. Most issues can be prevented by taking simple actions in your every day life to keep them strong. Once teeth are gone, they’re gone for good, so it’s better to be as diligent as you reasonably can be for oral care.
