We all know how important it is to eat healthily, but we rarely make the connection between a healthy diet and healthy teeth. The fact of the matter is, the healthier food you eat, the healthier your teeth – and your entire oral health – will be.
So let’s take a look at some tooth-friendly treats our team here at Dido Kim recommends you snack on instead of sugary treats.
Raw fruits and veggies
These are low in fat, and fruit especially can still satisfy your sweet tooth without throwing down too much sugar. The best part, though, is that both fruits and veggies stimulate saliva production.
Saliva is actually key in protecting your teeth against all sorts of problems, from cavities to gum disease. So the more fruits and veggies in your diet, the healthier your mouth will be as a whole.
Bread are actually good for your teeth, even if you’re watching your carbs. Plain bagels, unsweetened cereal, low-salt pretzels, and pasta are great options if you need a midday snack but don’t want too much sugar.
Yes, there are meats that promote good oral health! Lean meats like chicken and turkey, as well as other sliced deli meat, are a great choice for good oral health.
