How Leafy Greens Help Your Teeth

Posted .

If you enjoy salad, we’ve got a bit of good news for you: leafy greens are excellent for teeth! With all of the many foods out there that can weaken teeth, we thought you may like to know a little bit more about the ones that are awesome for teeth. Read this post to find out a little bit more, and ask us about healthy diet choices during your next checkup in our office.

Leafy greens, which can include foods such as lettuce, spinach, kale, and arugula, are superfoods. They are both packed with nutrients and low-calorie. The greenest leafy greens promote dental health by strengthening your tooth enamel, which provides a barrier against cavity-triggering acids. The folic acids in leafy greens may be particularly advantageous for women having children, as they can treat gum disease.

If you’d like to make leafy greens a part of your diet, you can always eat some more salad, but you may also deliberate on having them with other foods. Many people like to blend in a little bit of kale into smoothies, and spinach is awesome on pizzas! If you get creative, your teeth and your taste buds will benefit from the many ways you can find to eat leafy greens.
