Many are aware of the foods that are bad for the health of their teeth. Sugary candies and sodas are removed from many diets for various reasons. However, just as some foods are bad for the health of teeth, there are some foods that can really benefit the teeth.
Cheese, milk, yogurt they are all very good for your teeth. These dairy foods are also very high in calcium which is an essential vitamin for the development and strength of teeth and the enamel. In addition, these foods are also high in protein which helps to make the teeth stronger.
Not only do these foods such as spinach, kale, and lettuce help to boost any great salad, but they are also good for the overall health of a person’s teeth. This kind of food tends to be high in vitamins and minerals while being low in calories. In addition, some of the vitamins found in these foods can help to prevent and even cure gum disease.
While most people know to avoid sweets and sugars when trying to protect their teeth, many fruits, including apples, are actually good for the teeth’s strength. While these fruits are sweet, they are also high in fiber and water, both of which are great for the teeth. Many of these fruits are known to create extra saliva in the mouth with is helpful in rinsing away and lingering debris or bacteria.
Like many fruits, vegetables also tend to be full of fiber, which can help produce more saliva. This can help to reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. In addition, some vegetables can work as a toothbrush by scraping bacteria off of the teeth. While it cannot replace a toothbrush, a few sticks of celery can help assist in the process. Healthy teeth go far beyond the foods eaten. They require regular checkups and cleanings. Contact Yardley Dental Arts today to make an appointment.
