Cheese Can Give You a Lot of Dental Health Benefits
Posted on 4/20/2019 by Clay Keith dds
Cheese is a great dietary option to go with when you want something that is going to help your teeth and bones. Many types of cheese can provide many health benefits. If you're not a cheese eater, you may want to consider eating cheese if you would like healthier teeth and oral health overall.
If you don't like cheese or other dairy products, some vegetables, like leafy greens or even nuts like almonds are great for getting that extra phosphorus that your teeth and bones can benefit from.
Dental Health Benefit of Cheese
Cheese comes with many dental health benefits. Not only is cheese high in calcium, but it also has a protein known as casein which can strengthen the tooth enamel and help to prevent cavities from forming. This protects the teeth and ensures that you get less cavities, not more. Which is what everyone wants when they are looking to have a stronger, better smile overall that shines bright and stands tall.
Foods that are high in phosphate and calcium are great for bones and teeth, so they are the foods that you want to incorporate into your diet. The more you get of these nutrients, the better for everyone. These nutrients also help to balance the pH levels in your mouth, which can ensure that there is less acidic content that can be harmful to your teeth and gums and more saliva to cleanse the area. This also means fewer cavities to deal with.
