Teeth Friendly Food

There are some fruits and vegetables that are teeth friendly like watermelon. This juicy fruit contains many components that promote a healthy immune system. It is made up of more than 90 percent water. This helps dissolve and rinse out food debris, sugar and bacteria left in the mouth. In addition, the following vitamins and minerals encourage oral health:

  • Vitamin A for healthy gums, proper healing and saliva production
  • Vitamin B6 and B1 help reduce inflammation due to mouth canker sores
  • Vitamin C strengthens teeth and gums
  • Copper and magnesium harden teeth and prevent wearing
  • Lycopene strengthens bones and teeth
  • Phosphorous and calcium combine to strengthen teeth
  • Potassium affects bone mass
  • Malic acid, antioxidants and vitamin C work together to dissolve tarter buildup
  • Antioxidants protect gums and prevent cell damage

Other reasons that watermelon is friendly to teeth:

  • Easy to chew and will not chip or crack teeth or damage braces and wires
  • Does not stain teeth like blackberries, blueberries and pomegranates
  • Does not get stuck between teeth
