We all know these are great foods for our health but did you know why the American Dental Association says these are the 5 best?
1. Water: Staying hydrated reduces dry mouth, which is a breeding ground for bacteria to create cavites. Drink half your weight in ounces of H20.
2.Dairy: full of calcium, low in sugar strengthens your teeth.
3. Fruits/veggies: we mean the crunchy ones especially. Apples, celery, carrots. High in water and fiber, the extra chewing stimulates saliva eliminating bacteria and bad breath.
4.Lean proteins: The phosphorus in these foods strengthens your teeth with high protein.
5.Nuts: Anything with low carbs does aid in cavities forming. Nuts are high in protein and minerals also stimulating saliva production.
