We all know that brushing and flossing helps maintain our teeth, but did you know that these foods and beverages can also help with dental health?
Cheese - Cheese can reduce levels of acid in our mouths.
Tea - Polyphenols, which are found in black and green teas, slow the growth of bacteria that causes gum disease and cavities.
Milk - Milk lowers the level of acid in the mouth.
Raisins - Raisins contain phytochemicals, which may kill cavity-causing plaque bacteria.
Cranberries - Just like tea, cranberries have polyphenols, which may prevent plaque from sticking to teeth.
Gum - As long as it's sugarless, gum creates more saliva, which clears away bacteria.
