Chew On This:
The Best Foods For
Your Teeth
Cheese
This calcium-rich dairy
product is an ideal snack
that can protect teeth against
cavities. Cheese also contains
a protein called casein, which
stabilizes and repairs enamel.
Garlic
Allicin in garlic has
strong antimicrobial
properties, which
can fight tooth
decay, especially
periodontal disease.
Leafy greens
Fibrous leafy greens, such
as kale and spinach, require
a lot of chewing. This helps
stimulate saliva production
and wash harmful acids and
food particles from your teeth.
Sweet potatoes
Vitamin A in sweet
potatoes helps maintain
the protein keratin, an
agent that promotes the
formation of tooth enamel.
Green tea
Polyphenols found in green
tea help limit the growth of
certain bacteria associated
with periodontal diseases.
Green tea also contains
fluoride, which aids in
building stronger teeth.
Cranberries
Fresh cranberries are rich
in polyphenols, provide
antioxidant benefits and are
effective at disrupting the
process of plaque formation.
Strawberries
These summer berries
contain malic acid, a
natural enamel whitener.
Complete oral care extends far beyond regular brushing and flossing. Your day-to-day diet
plays a critical role in promoting oral health, too. Check out these foods that provide essential
nutrients for healthy teeth and gums.
