Why Apples and Pears Are Some of the Best Fruits You Can Eat for Your Teeth
Posted on 10/19/2020 by Crossroads Family Dental
Why Apples and Pears Are Some of the Best Fruits You Can Eat for Your TeethThere are very many types of fruits available in the market today. Eating fruits helps you build your immunity and keep your teeth healthy. Fruits are well known for promoting good dental health and hygiene. Apples and pears are some of the best fruits you can eat for your teeth. They do have several benefits, such a protecting your gum and teeth. The following are the reason why adding apple and pears to your diet is right for your teeth.

Apple


Biting and chewing an apple stimulates the salivary glands. The saliva produced lower the level of bacteria and also reduce tooth decay. Apples will help you whiten discolored or stained teeth. This is because apples contain a special kind of acid called malic, used in the manufacture of teeth whitening products. Apples naturally help to clean plaque from the teeth. We recommend that you eat the apple whole instead of drinking apple juice because the apple peel has several beneficial properties. The fiber in the apple acts like a toothbrush to help clean the teeth as you eat it.

Pears


Just like apples, pears are fibrous. They contain high levels of vitamin C, which helps the human body produce collagen; this is a protein that is responsible for maintaining your gum health and strength. Pears also contain vitamin K, which helps in the building of bones. It is what will enable you to keep your teeth strong and healthy.

Eating fruits and vegetables every day will improve your oral health and protect you from dental diseases. If you are concern about how the fruits you are taking affect your oral health, contact us. We will advise you on the best fruits for your oral health. Remember, eating healthy fruits only compliments your oral health but regular dental checkups are most important.
