I Hate Vegetables! What Are Some Veggies That Are Good For My Teeth?

Posted on 2/2/2024 by Weo Admin
Adults can have some pretty bad eating habits, especially when it comes to consuming vegetables. While health experts prefer that you eat three to five servings of fruits and vegetables each day, many American adults eat more fruit than veggies, if they consume vegetables at all. If one of your goals this year is to eat more vegetables, there are many vegetables that have added benefits for your dental health. Celery Eating celery is great for your overall dental health. First, it acts as a natural toothbrush because it increases the saliva in your mouth, which means you are able to wash more bacteria out of your mouth. That bacteria causes both tooth decay and gum disease. Also, the fibers in celery act as flossers and can clean plaque from your teeth, which keeps your teeth and gums healthier. Celery contains both vitamins A and C, which helps the blood flow within your teeth and gums and cuts down on inflammation. Carrots Like celery, carrots act like a natural toothbrush. In fact, carrots are such great toothbrushes you can give them to your dog to help clean its teeth! Carrots are high in vitamin A, which helps keep your teeth and jaws strong. Also, chewing raw carrots cuts down on hunger and sugar cravings. Leafy Greens If you hate veggies, one great tip is to combine several vegetables into one salad and consume a lot of vitamins and minerals in one meal. Any leafy green vegetable, such as spinach, collards, lettuce, cabbage, and chard, contains those great C and A vitamins, as well as magnesium and phosphorus, which help your teeth stay strong and healthy. Orange, Yellow, Or Red Vegetables Vegetables that are sunset-colored not only make your dishes look amazing, but they contain smile-saving vitamins and minerals. One of the best reasons to try bright vegetables is because they are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants help keep inflammation down throughout your body, which can help you fight off gum disease. Not sure if your diet is rich enough in vegetables? Why not make an appointment with one of our dentists today to discuss it?...
