Best Foods for Dental Health


Everyone is familiar with the old saying about an apple a day keeping the dentist away. But is there any truth in it — and what other foods will help keep teeth and gums in peak condition?

Apples, of course, feature highly on the list of best foods for dental health — as their crunchy texture helps clean teeth, while they also encourage the production of saliva which helps fight oral bacteria. Apples also contain natural sugars, have a high fibre content and are rich in vitamin C which all help promote good oral and gum health.

Other beneficial foods include:

Spinach. Like other leafy, dark greens, spinach is rich in fibre as well as calcium, iron, phosphorus, and vitamins C and K which are beneficial to teeth and gums.

Salmon. Along with tuna, herring, sardines and anchovies, salmon is rich in omega-3 fats which can help to prevent gum inflammation and disease.

Sweet Potatoes. These underrated vegetables contain antioxidants including vitamin A and keratin which promotes strong tooth enamel.

Almonds, and nuts in general, are loaded with calcium and protein which are essential for your dental health — as well as vitamin E which can reduce gum inflammation and help combat gum disease. Find out more at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/these-5-foods-are-good-for-your-oral-health/
