Go on a Diet for Your Teeth - Ballwin Dental Care

You’ve heard of diets that can aid the health of your body, but are you aware that you can also go on a diet for your teeth? Continue reading to learn about foods that are great for your teeth.

Yogurt
Yogurt is high in protein and calcium, which are great for tooth enamel. Another benefit of yogurt is that the probiotics can aid in the health of your gums. This is because the good bacteria takes the place of bacteria that can cause decay and infection. Yogurt is most beneficial if you choose a plain variety with no added sugar.

Leafy Greens
Leafy greens, including spinach and kale, promote dental health. They can aid in tooth enamel, as they contain calcium.

Apples
Even though apples are sweet, they are high in fiber and water. Because they are crunchy, eating apples increases saliva flow, which helps clean away food particles and bacteria. Apples are fibrous in texture, so eating them stimulates the gums. Eating an apple at the end of a meal can give your teeth a good scrubbing, though it does not replace brushing and flossing.

Carrots
Carrots are crunchy and contain fiber. Eating raw carrots can increase the flow of saliva in your mouth, thus helping to reduce the risk of cavities. Carrots also contain vitamin A, which can boost the health of the gums.

Celery
Like apples and carrots, eating celery can help scrub food particles and bacteria off of the teeth. Celery also contains vitamin A and vitamin C, which can help the health of your gums.
