While many of things that are bad for your teeth are obvious, you might be surprised at some of the things that are actually quite good for them- even some things with natural sugars are great for your overall mouth health.
First are nuts. That’s right nuts are great for your teeth! Not the sugar coated kind, unfortunately, but raw nuts are rough and make your mouth respond by producing extra saliva- which does a lot of good. Pineapple is a shocker, because it does have an acidic juice like citrus fruits, but in small doses it contains a chemical- bromelain- that helps remove stains. So as long as you’re drinking some water after to wash away the acidic juice, pineapples can help break up stains!
Cheese is a miracle food when it comes to your tooth health. First, it stimulates that saliva, but then it also goes- it also coats teeth to protect against the acids produced by plaque, thus helping to prevent damage to enamel.
