How Soft Food Diets Can Harm Your Jaw
Your jawbone is just like every other bone in your body. The more you use it, the stronger it is. When you do not use your bones enough, they slowly deteriorate. When it comes to your jaw, it gets used when you chew up your food. If you only eat soft foods, you minimally use your jaw. This means that it is more likely to begin the resorption process. This is when it weakens and becomes more likely to cause lost teeth. In order to avoid this, you need to make sure that you also mix harder foods into your diet. This should include lean meats, or in cases of those who opt for a vegetarian diet, hearty produce and nuts are a great option as well.
