The foods and beverages we consume on a daily basis have a significant impact on our physical and dental health. Our teeth and gums are very sensitive to what we put into our bodies, and it’s essential to know how these foods affect our teeth. Here’s our guide to foods that are beneficial for your teeth and gums!

General Foods Good for Teeth and Gums

In general, the best foods for your teeth will be natural foods. Foods with low sugar or no sweeteners and unprocessed foods have the lowest risk of causing damage to your teeth. Look for fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, or dairy products. A great tip is to shop around the perimeter of your grocery store. These foods tend to be natural, fresher foods and will be much better for your teeth than sugary snacks.
