Best Foods for Your Teeth

August 31 2020

Keeping your teeth healthy is imperative. Not only do you need them to help you eat, but they are also vital when it comes to talking. If they are infected with cavities or you lose them to rot, this can have a negative impact on your health and your life.

For the best overall tooth health, eating the right foods can definitely help. Here are some things you should be ingesting:

  • Carrots

You might have always been told that carrots are good for your eyes, but they can also benefit your teeth. They are full of fiber and vitamin A. You might consider eating a handful of carrots right after a meal. This will help stimulate saliva production, which washes away the harmful bacteria that can cause cavities.

  • Apples

Apples are another crunchy, healthy option that can be good for your teeth. Again, eating an apple after a meal can increase the amount of saliva in your mouth. The fibrous texture also benefits your gums. Whether you eat a whole apple or pack some slices, this can be a great way to clean your mouth after a meal if you don't have the opportunity to brush your teeth.

  • Celery

Most people think of celery as negative calorie food. It doesn't seem to do much but add crunch to salads. It certainly doesn't have much flavor. However, it can be incredibly beneficial to your teeth. Eating celery after a meal is a great way to remove food particles and bacteria from the surface of your teeth. It also contains vitamins A and C, which are antioxidants that are good for the health of your gums.

  • Cheese

It has been found that eating cheese increases the pH level in your mouth. This lowers the risk of tooth decay, keeping your teeth healthy and happy. Cheese also contains protein and calcium, which are essential in building strong enamel. If you've always enjoyed indulging in cheese, now you have another reason to eat it as often as you like.

  • Salmon

If you're looking for a main dish that benefits your teeth, you should consider eating salmon. The omega-3s and vitamin D available in this fish help your body absorb calcium. Since this is needed to create strong enamel, eating salmon is a great way to strengthen your teeth.

  • Leafy Greens

Leafy greens are yet another way to benefit your teeth. These require a lot of chewing to break them down, which means your mouth has to produce saliva. Since this is needed to wash away bacteria and food particles, leafy greens will help keep your mouth clean.

  • Yogurt

Like cheese, yogurt is loaded with protein and calcium - both of which are needed for strong teeth. Yogurt also contains probiotics, which can improve the health of your gums. Probiotics are good bacteria, and having more of these in your body will get rid of the bad bacteria. With fewer bad bacteria in your mouth, this lowers your chances of getting cavities.

  • Green or Black Tea

It has been found that green and black tea contains antioxidants and bacteria fighting ingredients. These can benefit your teeth by making it harder for plaque to stick to the surface. A lot of teas also have fluoride in them, which is essential in making your enamel stronger and preventing tooth decay. Drinking green or black tea is a great way to make your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Tea may be good for your teeth, but it can also stain them. Thankfully, there's an easy way to remedy this problem. By using GLO Vials right after drinking tea, you can prevent the stains from setting and keep your teeth looking good.

  • Gum With Xylitol

As mentioned, the saliva in your mouth does a great job of removing bacteria and food particles from the surface of your teeth. Chewing gum with Xylitol after a meal can protect your teeth and gums. Xylitol inhibits the bacteria that cause cavities. This is a great way to protect your teeth and smile.

Other Options to Keep Your Teeth Healthy

In addition to eating the right foods, there are other ways to keep your teeth healthy. One of these is to use the best teeth whitening product. Many people are unhappy with the state of their teeth. The discoloration and stains can make them feel self-conscious.
