Healthy Foods for a Healthy Mouth - Part 1
By Roger B. Parkes, DMD on April 15, 2016
Maintaining good oral health is important to your well-being, and one way to keep our mouths healthy is with the food that we eat. If you're hungry, here are a few healthy options to consider:
Pineapples - Thanks to a Bromelain, a enzyme that breakdown proteins, pineapples can help remove stains from your teeth and keep them clean and strong.
Celery - The stringy, fibrous nature of celery means allows it to clean your teeth as you eat it. Since it requires a lot of chewing, it also causes your mouth to generate saliva, which washes away plaque.
Carrots - Thanks to Vitamin A, carrots are already good for your eyes, but this sweet, crunchy treat also stimulate saliva production which helps to keep your teeth clean.
