Why Vegetables Should Be Your Go-To Oral Health Boosting Snacks
Posted on 12/25/2019 by Matt Aldridge DDS
What we eat plays a significant role in our overall health, including dental health. With excellent dental hygiene, a healthy diet, and regular dental checkups, we can do a lot to prevent dental decay. Vegetables and fruits play an essential part in boosting our overall dental health. Let us look at some of the best oral health-boosting snacks that you should include in your diet. Fresh Vegetables and Fruits for Excellent HealthVeggies and fruits are some of the food types to keep our teeth healthy thanks to their nutritional value. For instance, raw vegetables like carrots, celery, and greens, as well as crisp fruits like apple can help eliminate plaque from our teeth and also freshen up our breath. On top of that, many fruits and vegetables contain lots of antioxidants, like vitamin C, which helps protect our gums and protect several tissues from bacterial infection and cell damage. On the other hand, leafy greens also contain vitamin B, folic acid, which plays an integral part in supporting cell growth and promoting a healthy mouth. Citrus and Apple FruitsApart from your overall health, apples are also great for your dental health. While apples are not a substitute for flossing and brushing, consuming apples and citrus fruits increase salivation and can improve our overall dental health. Chewing on the fibrous texture of citrus fruits and apples can stimulate our gums, reduce the cavity-causing bacteria, and finally increase the flow of saliva. You just have to be careful about not letting the acid of citrus damage your teeth. Carrots, Root Vegetables, and CeleryStrong and healthy gums are crucial in maintaining our oral health. Just like oranges and apples, chewing on root vegetables stimulates our gums and also helps in generating saliva. Celery and carrots are also a great source of nutrients known as beta carotene, which is needed by our bodies to produce vitamin A. That said, vegetables should be an integral part of your oral hygiene. If you need advice on how you can take better care of your teeth and gums, then you should make a point of contacting us....
