We love teeth, and as lovers of beautiful white teeth we need to do our best to keep them healthy and strong. We all know that you need to do your regular brushing and flossing but what else can we do on our own to help our teeth? Here we want to talk about some specific foods you can eat that will help strengthen and keep your teeth healthy for years to come.
- Avocado. Avocados, are becoming more and more common in our day to day diets. More and more restaurants serve food with avocado. This is great news because avocados are extremely healthy for our teeth. Avocados are packed full of fibers which help feed our probiotics bacteria in our gut and oral.
- Cheese. Yep, that’s right cheese. Turns out that cheese is incredibly healthy for our teeth. According to studies cheese raises pH in the mouth and lowers the risk of tooth decay. Also, cheese carries calcium and protein which strengthen tooth enamel.
- Kefir. For those who don’t know Kefir is a fermented milk that originated from the Middle East. Kefir has always been considered one of the healthiest drinks but also helps the overall health of our teeth. Kefir contains the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K2. This is a perfect combination to absorb this crucial mix of health teeth nutrients.
- Spinach. It turns out that, that leafy green called spinach will greatly help the life and strength of your teeth. Spinach is a good source of iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and folic acid. These minerals will improve your overall dental health. In addition, spinach gives you a boost of antioxidants. Antioxidants help remove damaging oxidizing agents from your body. The benefits of antioxidants extend to healthy teeth and gums too.
We hope that you’ll take just these few suggestions and begin to look for healthier food to strengthen you mouth and teeth. Eating a healthy diet wont just make you lose weight or make you feel better, but a healthy diet will benefit your body in many ways in the years to come especially with your teeth.
