Did you know there are some foods extremely healthy for your teeth? It’s easy to think no matter what you eat, your teeth are unhealthy. However, this is not true. Cheese, poultry, other meats, nuts, and milk all provide calcium that helps keep your teeth healthy. There are also healthy drinks for your teeth, to prevent tooth decay in your smile. These drinks include water, milk, and unsweetened tea.
Your teeth are the first contact food will have in your body. The sugars and nutrients are first exposed to your mouth before they are exposed in the rest of your body. As a result, it’s important to remember to take care of your oral health, and in doing so, you are helping your overall health.
