10 Best Foods to Eat for Your Dental Health

| 12/22/2017 9:40:00 AM

When you think about how food affects your dental health, you can come up with a lot of bad foods. Things that are high in sugar are going to cause cavities and things like dark soda will stain your teeth. Those are the obvious foods you can avoid when trying to improve your dental health, but there are some foods you should try to eat, too.

Depending on what you eat, good foods can improve the health of your teeth and gums. Not all of them are bad, so do your research before you head out to the grocery store and discover what you can eat to make your mouth healthier and your smile even bigger.

1. Yogurt

You’ve probably seen commercials that say yogurt is good for digestive regulation. The same thing that causes it to get your system moving is what also makes it so great for your teeth. The good bacteria in it will slow cavity growth, so if you get a couple packs on sale the next time you’re at the store, you can help your body in two different ways just by eating one food product.

2. Cheese

Anyone who loves cheese knows that it’s almost impossible to not add to a dish, which may end up being a good thing for your teeth. Calcium is known to be good for your bones because it strengthens them, so it’s easy to guess that it’ll also strengthen your teeth. This is true, but cheese also contains whey proteins that build up enamel. Next time you make a sandwich, put on an extra slice of cheese. For your teeth, of course!

3. Apples

Foods can not only strengthen your teeth — they can whiten them, too. There’s no need to buy expensive whitening strips or sign up for highly priced procedures when you can just add an extra food to your grocery list. Apples are great at removing stains because they contain malic acid. This acid increases saliva production, which lifts stains. The best part is that you can get any kind of apple you like.
