Eating right provides you with far more benefits than just looking good, fitting into your favorite dress, or getting to your optimal weight. A good diet will also make a positive impact on your oral health.
Fruit and veggies stimulate saliva
The more fruit and vegetables you eat, the more saliva your mouth will produce. This is important because saliva is actually a big part of having healthy teeth. It cleans them, protects enamel, and helps remove bacteria from your mouth that can cause bad breath and other oral health issues.
Keeps your smile white
Generally, if you’re eating right, your soda intake is likely very low. This helps out a lot because soda is one of the leading causes of tooth discoloration. Removing it from your diet removes the possibility that you’ll need whitening services to remove surface stains from your teeth.
In addition to everything above, the fact that you’re eating healthily means that all the right nutrients are present in your mouth. These nutrients, combined with your immune system and a good oral health routine, will fight cavities and make the likelihood you get one that much lower.
