In many families, there are three things you know to never to bring up: politics, religion, and DIETING. We understand that there are a lot of foods out there you shouldn’t enjoy if you hope to maintain strong oral health, but we thought that some positive data on helpful foods would be of use. The following is a list of foods that you can snack on with confidence . . . when it comes to your oral health, anyway.

Celery, also known as nature’s toothbrush, is a great, low-cal food selection that will rub away some of the built-up plaque sitting on your teeth.

Baby carrots and almonds are great alternatives to replace candies since they’re little, snack-sized and less sugary. Grab some next time you’re wanting to eat jelly beans.

Apples, like celery, may clean away some of the plaque accrued on your teeth and gums. Apples stimulate the development of saliva in the mouth, helping to rinse away debris and damaging debris.

The calcium and protein contained in yogurt will rebuild your tooth enamel, and the probiotics within yogurt may edge out the bad bacteria in your mouth.
