Vegetables Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS NY 13215-2205Having healthy teeth is important for all of us. We need them to be robust and healthy so we can eat right and have a beautiful smile.

Without our teeth, we would be left with eating soft foods all the time, and everyone enjoys pizza and a burger every once in a while.

This is why we need to be sure what types of vegetables can help strengthen the teeth. As always, if you need any dental work done, contact us right away for the help you need.

Carrots and Celery
Eating carrots and celery will help keep your teeth clean from the plaque that builds up and keep your breath fresh from the different foods you eat. They are also delicious to eat so no one, besides children who don't like them, should have a problem eating them.

Green Leafy Vegetables
Green leafy vegetables are good for your teeth because they have folic acid in them which help strengthen your teeth. Folic acid is also a member of Vitamin B. Do not forget that we are always here for help when you need something done with your teeth.

Firm, Crunchy Vegetables That Contain Plenty of Water

Firm and crunchy vegetables such as peppers and lettuce and other crunchy and firm veggies can help keep your teeth as sharp as they should be. Crunchy vegetables make you chew a lot and chewing promotes more saliva.

In return, the extra saliva you produce naturally neutralizes the bacteria that builds up and causes cavities. Not only this, but the texture of these veggies help rub up against your teeth, and this naturally cleans them which then makes them stronger.

By rubbing against the teeth, these crunchy vegetables also remove the bacteria and plaque that builds up on your teeth.

Eating these types of vegetables should be no problem, especially for adults who like them. Try to get your children to eat them too, so they won't have as many dental problems. However, if anything needs to be done with your teeth, you can always see us for help.
