In lots of families, there are three main things you have learned to never to talk about: politics, religion and DIET. We recognize that there are a lot of foods out there you shouldn’t consume if you are looking to maintain good oral health, but we thought that some positive info on healthy foods would be of use. Here is a list of foods you can eat with confidence . . . when it comes to your teeth, anyway.

Celery, also known as nature’s toothbrush, is a superb, low-cal food pick that will rub away some of the stockpiled plaque sitting on your teeth.

Baby carrots and almonds are great choices to replace candies since they’re portable, snack-sized and less sugary. Grab some next time you’re tempted to consume jelly beans.

Apples, just like celery, can wash away some of the plaque on your teeth and gums. Apples also stimulate the manufacturing of saliva in the oral cavity, helping to wash away debris and damaging food debris.

The calcium and protein found in yogurt will strengthen your enamel, and the probiotics within yogurt may edge out the bad bacteria in your oral cavity.
