High Calcium Foods to Help Boost the Strength of Your Teeth


Posted on 3/30/2017 by Dr. Leite
A collection of fruits and vegetables beside each other.
When you need more calcium to help make your teeth stronger, most people automatically assume they need to take pills or drink more milk.

While having more dairy will help boost your calcium intake, there are more options than just dairy foods to give your body the extra calcium it needs. Here are a few great options to help give your body extra calcium to help your teeth get stronger and healthier.

Foods to Eat When You Need Extra Calcium


Leafy green vegetables are one of the top sources of extra calcium. Adding spinach or kale to your dinner can boost your calcium with very little effort. Put a little in with your eggs at breakfast, or add a little into your soup for lunch or dinner.

Broccoli is another great vegetable with a lot of calcium in it. If you want to change it up now and again, try broccoli rabe. Both provide you with a lot of calcium, among other nutrients that they can give you.

You can eat them raw in a salad, or cooked as the perfect dinner side. The more you chew it up, the more your body can benefit from eating these choices!

Want something a little sweeter? Consider eating figs. They are a good source of calcium, and they are a good treat to have now and again. They make good snacks, and they can also be used in desserts.

There are tons of health benefits of figs, not just calcium, so they should be something you include in your regular diet as often as you can.

Contact us about how your dietary needs are being met. They can look at your teeth and let you know if you are lacking calcium for a healthy smile.
