Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss – and a fork 7

By now you have hopefully read through the 6 points for healthier teeth that we have previously published. So today we will talk about point number 7, Cheese!

Everyone know that Cheese has calcium and that dairy products are beneficial in building strong bones and teeth, but did you know that Cheese can stop you from developing cavities?

Cavities like an acidic environment, and certain cheeses, like aged cheddar, Swiss, mozzarella and Monterey Jack, help balance pH levels in your mouth.

When eaten alone as a snack or at the end of a meal, these stimulate saliva flow, which clears the mouth of food debris and neutralizes harmful acids.

Furthermore, teeth constantly go through a process of shedding and regaining bone-building minerals, called demineralization and remineralization.

When the calcium and phosphorus in cheese combine with saliva, the reaction restores minerals, thus keeping teeth stronger,says Rhea Haugseth, D.D.S., of the American Academy of Dentistry.

So when you say Cheese for the camera and smile, think of what the real Cheese can do to help keep that beautiful smile!
