Surprising Foods that are Actually Good for Your Teeth

Surprising Foods that are Actually Good for Your Teeth

Everyone has heard of the foods that are bad to your tooth health. Sugary foods and acidic foods are on top of the list of foods to avoid. But instead of thinking negatively about foods, think positively. What foods are good for your teeth? Do any certain foods increase your dental health? Here are some food items that are not only tasty but improve your dental health too.

Salmon has a ton of Omega fatty acids, so it’s good for your body in general. But did you know it’s also good for your teeth, too? Salmon contains a significant level of vitamin D and calcium as well as those wonderful omega fatty acids. To have healthy teeth, you also need regular servings of vitamin D and calcium to keep your teeth healthy.

“ Celery is a treat for your teeth and gums because chewing the celery stalk gives your teeth a good workout. Because you have to chew celery stalks quite a bit before you can swallow them, your mouth produces plenty of saliva. ”

The calcium strengthens bones and teeth. And vitamin D enables the body to absorb the calcium you ingest adequately. So, adding a regular serving of salmon to your diet will benefit your overall body health.

“Dentist and staff are absolutely amazing. I had a condition growing up where my baby teeth weren’t falling out. this made for a lot of extractions, braces, and procedures growing up. By far, this is the best dental office i’ve ever been to.”
