We can’t always get our way when it comes to our smiles, but we do have a say when it comes to our smile’s health. By keeping up a proper daily dental routine, we can ensure that our smiles remain healthy throughout our lives. Did you know that there are foods you can eat that will improve your dental health by just including them into your diet? It’s true! So, in honor of National Celery Month, Let’s take a look at these magical foods that not only give our bodies nutrients, but also keeps our smiles bright & shiny:
Apples. Apples not only acts as a natural abrasive, but its malic acid, acts as a bleaching agent to whiten teeth.
Broccoli. When eaten raw, broccoli is similar to apples – it acts as natural abrasive. Think of it like a natural toothbrush. Broccoli is high in fiber, great for preventing gum disease.
Celery. Veggies are low in calories and high in water content, which can help stimulate saliva production, a natural rinsing agent. And like broccoli, celery is like a form of floss.
Cheese. Cheese is rich in calcium and phosphorus, which helps provide your teeth with necessary nutrition to keep your enamel healthy and strong.
Garlic and onions. Eating both garlic and onions raw releases a bacteria-reducing compound called thiosulfinate, which promotes healthier teeth by reducing the production of plaque.
Pineapple. Pineapple contains bromelain, a natural stain remover that can help remove plaque buildup from the surface of your teeth, while also preventing tooth erosion and cavities from forming.
Strawberries. Like apples, strawberries contain malic acid and vitamin C, which can also aid in plaque removal.
