Did you know there are foods you can eat that can strengthen your teeth? Well, it’s true, and Dr. Watkins and our dental team are happy to tell you all about them! There are many foods that can help your smile, including dairy products, protein, fruits, and vegetables.
Dairy products, like cheese, milk, and plain yogurt, have many vitamins and minerals that can help your smile as well as your entire body. They also have calcium. When you consume these foods, the calcium seeps into your teeth and strengthens them, just like it does with your other bones.
Protein can help your teeth because it has a chemical called phosphorus that can protect as well as rebuild the tooth enamel. For the best results possible, you can eat meat, poultry, fish, and eggs.
Fruits and vegetables can benefit your smile because they are high in water as well as in fiber. They can also help clean the teeth. Also, they help you produce saliva when you eat them. This is helpful because when you produce saliva, the liquid washes the plaque and bacteria away from your smile.
