Here is a list of foods that can help keep your mouth healthy and some of their benefits. We will start off with our favorite treat that we provide to our patients when they visit our office.
Apples (and other crunchy fruits) - full of water, help to keep down plaque and massage gums
Dairy products - contain calcium which helps to fortify teeth, low in acidity and sugar
Proteins (beef, chicken, eggs, etc.) - rich in phosphorus, which combines with calcium to produce teeth and bones
Vegetables - full of water, rich in enamel-building Vitamin A
Water - cleans your mouth and hydrates gums
