Yogurt is Among the Best Foods For Teeth

 Cheese, milk and yogurt are packed with calcium, which strengthens enamel and fortifies bones.  It's something that kids like, so get them started on it young to help prevent cavities. For adults, the calcium is essential for bone loss and strong enamel.

Other foods that promote healthy teeth are:

Water - drink plenty of it! Hydration prevents dry mouth, which can lead to a build up of bacteria and plaque and cause cavities.

Leafy Green Vegetables

Crunchy vegetables such as celery and carrots

Coffee and Tea - Believe it or not!  These popular beverages contain polyphenols, which are antioxidants. They reduce inflammation and combat cell damage.

These are just some of the everyday foods we eat that help fortify and promote the health of our teeth and gums. 

So, Eat, Drink and be Merry!
