Teeth-friendly Fruits & Vegetables No. 1: Apples
We all know the famous saying, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away”, but did you know an apple a day can help the orthodontist? This super fruit is a tasty little treat that can go a long way to helping you maintain your physical and dental health.
Benefits of Apples
Apples are filled with fiber within the skin. The fiber-filled skin rubs against your teeth and scrubs them releasing any stains that may have developed from other foods. It can also help to remove plaque from your throat and the back of your tongue.
Apples are acidic fruits. The acid from an apple can help to kill any bad bacteria that cause bad breath. The process of eating an apple also helps to scrub your tongue and gums, which can aid in making your breath fresher.
Apples are great snacks. Constant eating is bad for your teeth. The more you eat, the less opportunity your mouth has to clean the elements from food that cause tooth decay. Eating an apple for a snack will not only help with the cleaning process of your teeth and mouth, but it will also help you to maintain your weight. The fiber in apples helps to manage your appetite. Apples will keep you from being hungry between meals. A skinnier waistline is a perfect reason for adding apples to your daily diet.
