In most families, there are at least three things you know to never to talk about: politics, religion, and dieting. We know that there are a lot of foods out there that you shouldn’t snack on if you want to maintain good oral health, but we thought that some brief information on useful foods would be of use. The following is a list of foods that you can eat with confidence . . . when it comes to your mouth, anyway.

Celery, which has been defined as nature’s toothbrush, is an excellent, low-cal food selection that will rub away some of the stockpiled plaque resting on your teeth.

Baby carrots and almonds are great choices to swap out candies since they’re little, snack-sized and less sugary. Take some next time you’re tempted to eat jelly beans.

Apples, like celery, may wash away some of the plaque on your teeth and gums. Apples also stimulate the development of spit in the mouth, helping to wash away debris and hurtful debris.

The calcium and protein contained in yogurt will fortify your enamel, and the probiotics contained in yogurt may push out the harmful bacteria in your oral cavity.
