Three Foods That Fight Plaque

The war against tooth decay is waged every day. You brush, you floss and even use mouthwash to keep plaque and tartar in check. Aside from regular dental check-ups, you may think there’s not much more you can do to keep harmful bacteria at bay. You’ll be happy to know the foods you already eat are helping you win the war on tartar:

  • Carrots, celery, and apples – Crunchy fruits and veggies full of fiber, clean teeth while you eat, and stimulate saliva production.
  • Dairy – Cheese, milk and yogurt contain calcium and vitamin D, all of which are bone-fortifying nutrients.
  • Fluoridated Water – The fluoride in the water you drink every day helps strengthen your teeth and fight against tooth decay.
