Best foods for healthy teeth & gums
Since young age we’ve learned how to wash our teeth 2 to 3 times a day to keep them healthy and white. Today scientists go beyond that and discover some new ways that can help you to keep your teeth healthy.
Some foods are actually harmful to the teeth, but here are the best foods for healthy teeth & gums:
Apples. Apples increase the amount of saliva in the mouth. The saliva washes the bacteria and keep your mouth moist.
Carrot and celery. Hard vegetables clean and massage the gums. These vegetables contain vitamin C, which helps to regulate the collagen. Collagen is the basic component of the gum tissue.
Soy and eggs. Foods rich in protein help the blood circulation to the nerve endings inside your teeth.
Dark chocolate. Modern studies show that the dark chocolate ingredients fight against food deposits on the teeth. Eat chocolate that contains 80% cocoa, as it has less sugar that can harm your teeth. But of course, don’t overdo it.
