This video offers a closer look at which snacks can help support healthy teeth and gums. It is important to limit your consumption of foods containing sugars and starches, as these combine with the bacteria in your mouth to create acid. Instead, try to stick with snacks like plain yogurt, cheese, almonds, and raw apples. Crunchy vegetables with high water content are also a great choice, as they stimulate saliva flow and help wash away acid and food debris. Watch this clip for more tips.
Brushing your teeth, flossing, and visiting your general dentist every six months are essential when it comes to protecting your oral health—but the foods you eat can also have an impact on the condition of your teeth.
