7 Of The Best Foods For Your Teeth

List of 7 of the best foods to consume for optimal dental health and to help whiten teeth.

1

Vegetables

Vegetables

Eating a variety of raw, organic vegetables can have a huge impact on your dental health. Raw vegetables are full of nutrients and their hard, fibrous texture helps “scrub” the surface of teeth, removing bacteria and plaque. They also contain enzymes that help promote saliva flow to strengthen enamel. Some of the best veggies are carrots, celery, broccoli, etc.

2

Fruit

Fruit

Many fruits work in a similar fashion to vegetables. Crunchy, fibrous fruit like apples and pears help clean and brush teeth. Other fruits like strawberries and citrus have certain acids that act as astringents. They not only help clean and whiten teeth, they help protect and support gums, teeth and surrounding tissue.

3

Water

Water

While it’s not technically a “food”, water is the best thing you can consume for strong, clean, healthy teeth. It helps clean your teeth, especially in-between meals and after dark colors or sugary beverages like coffee, tea, or soda. It also promotes remineralization and helps build enamel.

4

Clean Protein

Clean Protein

Moderate amounts of wild protein sources are great for your teeth! Fresh and fatty sources like eggs, salmon, and grass-fed beef provide essential minerals and vitamins like A, D, E, and K, all of which protect jaw tissues, muscles and also contain teeth-cleaning and whitening enzymes.

5

Nuts & Seeds

Nuts & Seeds

The hard surfaces of nuts and seeds are fibrous and full of fats and nutrients. Crunchy on a small amount of these daily will help keep plaque and bacteria at bay (and they’ll give your jaw a good workout!)

6

Healthy Fats & Oils

Healthy Fats & Oils

Good quality fats and oils help clean teeth. They also support repair from the inside out. Focus on clean sources like avocados, coconuts and their oils. You can also try oil pulling, which is great for detoxing and whitening teeth.

7

Raw Dairy

Raw Dairy

Not all dairy is created equal. Processed and pasteurized dairy has been stripped of its natural anti-bacterial enzymes. Try to find raw, organic grass-fed butter, yogurt, milk or other fermented dairy to provide your body and teeth with the most active and effective enzymes and nutrients for strong teeth and bones.
