Regular flossing and brushing of your teeth is the best protection against tooth decay and gum disease. Did you know, though, there are some foods that are tooth and gum-friendly and eating those foods will help protect your bright, healthy smile and even whiten your teeth? Foods to naturally whiten your teeth? It’s true!
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy involves more than simply eating the right foods and avoiding foods that can damage (candy, carbonated, sugary drinks, starchy foods). Eating fruits and vegetables and drinking calcium-rich beverages can help your overall dental health, but are no replacement for proper brushing, flossing and dental check-ups.
