Dr. Van Treese identifies healthy fruits and vegetables for a healthy mouth.
1. Pineapples
Pineapples contain a protein-breaking enzyme called Bromelain, that works to keep teeth strong and clean. Pineapples are also rich in vitamins, minerals, and acidity that can clean and remove stains from teeth.
2. Carrots
A tasty snack for children and adults, carrots help to keep enamel clear and vision healthy. Crunching on a carrot helps to stimulate saliva and wash away plaque. Carrots also contain Vitamin A, which is good for eyesight.
3. Celery
Composed of fibrous strands that clean the teeth, celery is another crunchy snack that generates saliva and washes away plaque.
