SIX Foods That Are Good For Your Teeth


Soda, candy, chips…the list can go on an on for the WORST foods for your teeth, but what about the BEST?

We’ve listed the top six BEST foods for your teeth below:

1. Cheese

Eating cheese can lower the risk of tooth decay. It’s thought that the chewing required to eat cheese increases saliva in the mouth. Cheese also contains calcium and protein, nutrients that strengthen tooth enamel.

 

2. Yogurt

The probiotics, or beneficial bacteria, found in yogurt also benefit your gums because the good bacteria crowd out bacteria that cause cavities.

3. Leafy Greens

Leafy greens such as kale and spinach also promote oral health. They’re high in calcium, which builds your teeth’s enamel. They also contain folic acid, a type of B vitamin that has numerous health benefits, including possibly treating gum disease in pregnant women

4. Celery

Celery gives your teeth a great workout. As you chew celery, it helps to clean your teeth and massages your gums in the process, while all that chewing will also produce plenty of saliva to neutralise bacteria.

 

5. Oranges

the vitamin C in citrus strengthens blood vessels and connective tissue and slows down the progression of gum disease by reducing inflammation.

6. Bananas

Bananas are packed with a number of minerals such as potassium, manganese, copper and vitamins like Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and others that are good for teeth and gums.
