5 Foods That Promote Dental Health

Read Time:4 Minute, 42 Second

We all want smiles that show beautiful teeth, but unfortunately, most of us are careless when it comes to our dental health.

If you think this is a description of you, the following article is just for you. Read on to learn how you can have fun with food and still have beautiful oral health.

But first, let’s look at some of the things you need to put away in your fridge.

Cold drinks

Coca-Cola, or any other carbonated drink, for that matter. You knew that, didn’t you? Well, now that you’re reading it in black and white, you have no more excuses. And to this, we are adding alcohol (to the disappointment of those in high spirits), as this can dry the mouth and, in the long run, ruin your teeth.

Candies and sweets

Well, if you have a sweet tooth, we know this can be hard to resist, so it’s okay to indulge in a little treat after a meal, but not if you’re going to be too lazy to wash your mouth soon after and jump on the hammock for your ‘nap after meal’.

Note that we said, ‘after a meal’ and this is just what we mean. This is because sugary foods produce acids, which can get rinsed with the pieces of food in your mouth after a meal.


Potato chips! Don’t we all love it? Now, how’s that going to affect my teeth? You may ask, and we understand how you feel, but here is the answer to the question.

you put in.

See, starchy foods get stuck inside your mouth and trapped between your teeth. Of course, this is not something that you feel, which means the damage happens gradually.

So, how about a healthy snack? Starchy foods can make you fat too, and we don’t want that, do we?


Like the experts always advise, watch what pills you are popping into your mouth and don’t take everything that the doctor seems to be prescribing.

And if you still think the medicine is inevitable, go ahead and buy a good fluoride rinse, though the better option would still be to avoid unnecessary pills.

So, what do I eat?

Okay, now that we’re assuming you cleared your fridge, it’s time to look at what we can add to it. Go on and have a read.


Yeah, that sounds boring, but let us ask you: How many glasses of water are you drinking?

Begin this habit, and you will find that you not only have healthy teeth but a healthier body and mind too.

Now, you will do that, won’t you?

Fruits and veggies

We know that in a world of fancy junk food, nobody likes these, but this is what you should be having if you want your smile to be flashing beautiful teeth and make your dental health healthier for a longer time.

Fruits and vegetables contain fibre, and fibre cleans the gums, and healthier gums finally lead to beautiful teeth.

And to this, let us add some juices, which we already hope you have bought to replace the alcohol and carbonated drinks in your fridge.

Remember that a lot of these fruit juices are made with fluoridated water, which is known to clean your teeth.

Just make sure that they do not come with a lot of sugar to create another source of harm to your teeth.


There, now, that surely made a lot of you smile. As we all know, milk is one of the best for your teeth, as it comes with a lot of calcium and phosphates that are known to provide for healthy teeth, building tooth enamel and making up for the minerals that you lost in the process of eating all the above rubbish.

While too much cheese can make you fat, a little bit can produce the right amount of saliva to clean your teeth.


Be it green or black, as long as it’s tea, put away that sachet of coffee, which is also known to stain the teeth.

So, let us tell you a little bit about tea. We all know how bacteria can affect the teeth, and tea comes with polyphenols that fight these bacteria the way a mongoose fights a snake to protect your teeth.

So, if you think you need a break from reading this article right now, why not go and get yourself a cup of tea?

Sugarless Chewing Gum

No, we’re not advising you to have chewing gum, but if you are one of those stubborn kids who have to have your way, then go ahead and buy some sugarless chewing gum.

And don’t complain that it is not sweet. Remember that if you are reading this article right now, it is because you want to flaunt a set of healthy teeth.

Poultry and seafood

We spoke of fluoride earlier, and here’s telling you a little more about it. You see, commercially prepared foods like poultry, seafood, and even powdered cereal, for that matter, do come with some amount of fluoride, which can help your teeth and is hence good.

You will do what it takes, won’t you?

Okay, so now you know what is good and what is not good for your teeth. The rest is up to you. Following our advice can be hard, and there are going to be those days of initial cravings, but you will finally be smiling brighter when you smile into the selfie cam and spot your beautiful teeth.
