It’s officially summer - the perfect time to help your teeth shine their very brightest. Healthy, bright teeth give you a confident smile that lights up your entire face. Practicing good oral hygiene is most important for healthy teeth, but did you know there are some basic summer time snacks that are not only healthy but can also help naturally whiten your teeth?
Here are 5 yummy summer snacks that will do the trick:
Pineapples contain the enzyme, Bromelain, which helps remove bacteria from your teeth and acts as a natural stain remover.
Strawberriescontain Malic Acid, which acts as a natural whitener removing discoloration on the surface of your teeth.
Apples, carrots and celery are perfect crunchy snacks that increase saliva production, removing stain causing debris and acids that lead to decay.
Yogurt and cheese not only contain calcium that promotes strong teeth and bones, but also Lactic Acid which helps clean teeth.
Water helps rinse away acid and stain causing residue from food and beverages such as tea, coffee and wine.
Brushing and flossing twice a day and regularly visiting your family dentist help maintain your bright smile while preventing cavities and gum disease. For adults and children alike, the American Dental Association recommends a check-up every six months.
