Fiber Filled Snacks Are Great for Your Teeth

Posted on 7/24/2017 by Dr Jonathan Ford
Fruits and vegetables can be benifical to oral health.
When you want healthy teeth, you want to make sure that you are eating the right foods. If you eat nothing but junk food, your teeth will reflect that, even if you take proper of your teeth. Your teeth need a lot of nutrition to be healthy and look good. By giving your teeth that nutrition, you help them stay strong, fight off cavities, and look great. One of the best ways to ensure that you are getting a lot of nutrition is by eating snacks that are full of fiber. Your smile will thank you for it.

Great Snacks That Have Lots of Fiber In Them

Produce is one of the best fiber-filled snacks out there. You should be making sure you get at least 6-8 servings of vegetables per day anyway, so if you get an extra serving or two out of your snacks, it is certainly not going to hurt anything. Consider eating salads when you are hungry, and turn them into ways of increasing your overall produce intake. Start with healthy greens like spinach and kale. Add in carrots, celery, and cucumbers, but make sure not to peel them. You want the fiber that is in their skins.

If you don't feel up to eating a full meal-size salad, pick one of those ingredients and just eat it as a snack. Your teeth will still get the benefits. Just make sure you change up which options you grab regularly so you change up which nutrients you get.

For more ideas on things that you can do to give your teeth a boost, speak with your dentist. The next time you are in for an exam or cleaning, ask them what foods you should be eating more of to keep your smile healthy and looking great.
