Why Your Teeth Love It When You Eat Greens

Posted on 3/15/2018 by Matt Aldridge DDS
Vegetables Oasis Dental WA 98683Do you love a warm bowl of collard greens or a fresh kale and spinach salad? Then you already know the benefits that your body gets from eating lots of greens. However, were you aware that your teeth benefit from you eating those types of foods as well?

It is true. Your teeth get quite a few benefits from times where you go out of your way to eat a lot of fresh and cooked greens. Here are some of the most important benefits you get from greens being a regular part of your diet.

Greens Are Really Good for Your Teeth

There are many reasons that greens are great for your teeth. First, they are really nutritious. They wash your teeth in nutrients, which get absorbed through the porous surface of your teeth. This helps your teeth stay healthy on the inside, which keeps them strong.

Second, they are really fibrous. The fibers on the inside of the greens scrub at your teeth. This helps to keep your teeth clean during the chewing process. They can even clean off plaque that has built up on your teeth, plus scrub off some surface stains! Third, they are full of water.

One thing that your mouth needs more than you may realize is lots of water. Dry mouth can leave you struggling with problems like gum disease and more cavities. By eating a lot of greens, you are more likely to fend off dehydration, which helps to keep your teeth healthier.

If you want to find out more about how greens can help to protect and nourish your teeth, then come in and see us. Ask us how greens can give you a healthier mouth and let us explain to you all of the wonderful benefits your mouth can get from eating greens regularly.
