Milk...A Tooth-Protecting Superfood!

If you are an avid milk drinker like me, then this is a blog you definitely want to read. I go through 2 gallons of milk a week, and I mean I GO through it. I personally drink at least 2 gallons of milk a week. What can I say, I love milk! So I had to ask to the question, is it good for your teeth? Well, great news my fellow milk drinkers! IT IS!

It has been proven that dairy products such as milk and cheese actually reduce tooth decay. Milk contains proteins called caseins, which will join together with the calcium and phosphorus to create a protective later on the surface of your teeth. (aka enamel). This helps prevent tooth decay by reducing the bacterial acids. Furthermore, the calcium and phosphorus also help strengthen and even repair the enamel on your teeth.

So, drink up my fellow milkaholics. It will help keep our smiles bright!

Oh yeah, on a side note: The ADA has recommended not to have milk and cookies because as we all know the sugary items such as cookies are bad for your teeth. However... there is still hope for us on that too. It is recommended that you have the cookies, THEN the milk. That will eliminate the sugar acids that cause plaque on your teeth.

As great as that sounds, milk and cookies always sound better than cookies then milk or milk after cookies, and we all it know it tastes better too!
