Have you heard that the foods you consume can change the health of your teeth? It’s true! We’ve got a bit of excellent news to share with you today: one of the world’s most adored foods is on the list of foods okay to eat! Keep reading to find out more about this dental superfood and how it can fortify and protect your teeth.
Cheese is one of the best foods for your mouth. According to the serial General Dentistry, eating cheese can heighten the pH in the mouths of those who eat it. This means that there will be fewer bacteria (and more basic compounds) in the oral cavity, and the decreased acids should result in less tooth erosion! While we don’t suggest seeking out cheese-flavored toothpaste just yet, a tiny bit of cheese can be an excellent addition to any meal if you’re looking to reinforce your teeth. Additionally, cheese contains calcium and other nutrients that protect the exterior layers of teeth and chewing cheese may increase the production of spit, which protects the oral cavity from cavities in a number of ways.
