Posted .

Were you aware that the foods you eat can affect the health of your teeth? It’s true! We’ve got some awesome news to share with you today: one of the world’s most beloved foods is on the list of foods okay to eat! Keep reading to find out additional about this oral superfood and how it can toughen and guard your teeth.

Cheese is one of the healthiest foods for your oral health. According to the serial General Dentistry, eating cheese can increase the pH in the mouths of those who eat it. This means there will be fewer acids (and more basic compounds) in the mouth, and the lessened acids should result in less tooth breakdown! While we don’t suggest seeking out cheese-flavored toothpaste just yet, a little bit of cheese can be a good addition to any meal if you’re looking to strengthen your teeth. Additionally, cheese contains calcium and other nutrients that reinforce the outer layers of teeth and chewing cheese may increase the production of spit, which protects the mouth from cavities in a number of ways.
