|That's right, we can all go nuts for healthy teeth. There is no argument from anyone that nuts are rich in magnesium, calcium as well as phosphate, all of which are important for maximum dental care. Turns out that the beautiful, healthy smile you see on so many glamourous people has been helped along with just adding some nuts to your daily diet.
The foods we consume vastly affect our dental health as much as brushing and flossing. All those sugary and starchy foods we eat add to the plaque and bacteria in our mouth that form all that tooth decay. However, what some do not realize is that even if we had the most pristine of pearly whites, oftentimes what we put in our bodies affects our breath too, and causes us such bad breath that even brushing won't help even with the most pristine teeth.
So, choosing the right foods helps fight all those bad things, naturally. Such as the bacteria, the removal of plaque, helps to strengthen the enamel goes a long way in the preservation of your pearly whites. What better and more natural way to do that than with a well-rounded diet of some of our favorite nuts.
Which Are The Best?
The most energizing of the top four is the cashew nut, as it helps maintain both healthy gums and teeth and al the extra chewing it requires produces plenty of saliva. The cashew also neutralizes a bacterium called Streptococcus mutans that causes cavities. When you chomp on these natural abrasive foods like cashews you massage your gums and that helps clean between your teeth. The ADA suggests that you actually snack on cashews once a day.
Peanuts also contain a good amount of calcium and vitamin D and so those two together do a great job of promoting good healthy teeth. Almonds are a great source of calcium promoting good healthy teeth and gum tissue. Last but not least, is walnuts, which contain just about a little bit of everything it seems that are good and beneficial for teeth, including magnesium and phosphorous which is so important for dental health.
Healthy teeth are so necessary for good oral health and having good teeth certainly makes you look younger as well, which is always a good reason to visit your dentist.
