5 Foods to Choose and Chew for Better Dental Care

Are you wondering how you can improve you dental health and dental care habits? Get the healthy smile you crave by choosing these dental diet superfoods.

  1. Punch up the Crunch

Craving a crunchy snack like cookies, pretzels, or chips? Rather than spoil your smile with sugary and starchy foods, your dentist prefers that you reach for crunchy veggies and fruits. See, eating crisp fruits and vegetables calls for lots of chewing, which scrubs plaque from teeth and increases your saliva to wash away bacteria. Choose to crunch and clean with carrots, apples, cucumbers, and other firm fruits and veggies. Ask your family dentistry clinic about easy ways to add these into your snacks and meals.

  1. Melt for Cheese

Be as cheesy as you like! According to family dentistry experts, eating cheese can neutralize the acid in your mouth that can lead to the kind of dental damage requiring a trip to your affordable dentist. Plus, cheese is high in calcium, which strengthens tooth enamel, as well as builds healthy teeth and bones. And the chewing that cheese requires increases your saliva, which can wash away oral bacteria.

  1. Milk It

Your dentist knows that milk is also high in calcium, which strengthens tooth enamel and neutralizes acids in the mouth that cause dental decay and disease.

  1. Be a Protein Pro

Pump up the protein to strengthen your smile. Protein sources like lean meats, fish, chicken, turkey, and eggs are very rich in phosphorous, which dental care experts have found is essential for healthy teeth.

  1. More Sugarless Gum

Less is more, as long it’s sugarless gum, which offers more dental protection. Chewing sugarless gum stimulates your saliva, which rinses away bacteria that’s clinging to your teeth. Yet, your affordable dentist will warn that you must choose sugarless brands to get the dental benefits.
