Five Foods that Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Jun 10th, 2015

We all know that brushing daily is a must if we want clean teeth and a healthy mouth. But, have you ever wondered what natural ways you could use to help maintain your oral health? Well, here is a list of foods that help keep your teeth clean and healthy.

1.Apples

Just one bite into an apple, and you are helping to give your teeth a scrub down. The act of biting and chewing on apples helps to scrub your teeth clean, as well as increasing your saliva. Apples have malic acid, which can be found in some toothpastes and which increases saliva. Saliva helps to clean your teeth and remove stains.

2. Broccoli

Eating raw, crisp broccoli can help clean and polish your teeth, but the health benefits of broccoli go much farther than that. Broccoli, which is high in fiber, helps to reduce inflammation in your mouth and in your entire body. The super powers of broccoli don’t stop there! The iron that broccoli contains creates a wall of protection against acid that aims to degrade your teeth.

3. Cheese

Some studies have shown that dairy and oral health go hand-in-hand, and cheese is a great example of that. Cheese contains many minerals that keep your teeth strong, such as calcium and phosphorus. It also helps to activate saliva, which cleans your teeth, and helps remove stains.

4. Strawberries

Strawberries not only have malic acid, like apples, but they also contain antioxidants that help reduce stain-attracting bacteria and inflammation in your mouth. The high amounts of vitamin C in strawberries can help prevent gum inflammation and periodontal disease as well. Next time you’re packing your lunch, or deciding which vegetable to have with dinner, try and remember to add foods that are good for your oral health.
