Healthy Snacks for Happy Teeth

Posted .

There are so many varieties of foods, drinks, and substances out there that knowing which is great for your chompers can be a real chore. Here are a few teeth-healthy treats that you can munch away at with confidence:

Celery. Celery’s natural structure helps it act like a toothbrush scraping away food remnants, and it has vitamin A and vitamin C, so it promotes healthy gums.

Cheese. Cheese might be the food with the biggest fan club, and we’re fans of the good things it can do for dental health. Once you eat it, cheese drops the acidity in your oral cavity. This, along with the protein and calcium found in cheese, makes cheese a tooth-friendly treat!

Strawberries. Strawberries have malic acids, which can be a good natural whitener for your enamel. Because they contain lots of vitamin C, they can also help enhance the strength of your teeth. If you do choose to eat strawberries, be wary and ensure to brush afterward: the seeds and acids left from strawberries can cause damage.
