3 Foods for Stronger, Sturdier Teeth

Tooth enamel is the toughest tissue of the whole human body. Keep the tough shell that covers the tooth at its strongest by adding these tooth-fortifying foods to your regular diet.

#1 Cheese

Dairy foods, including cheese, are rich in tooth- and bone-fortifying calcium. Not all cheese products are high in calcium though, so be sure to check the label to see what percentage of your daily recommended calcium amount each serving is giving you.

#2 Leafy Greens

Spinach and other leafy greens are loaded with fibre, which is excellent for your teeth because it requires a lot of chewing to break down and generates saliva that cleans and rinses your teeth while also neutralising acid. Not keen on greens? A bowl of high-fibre beans offers the same benefit.

#3: Crunchy Veg

Raw veggies and fruits that require a lot of chewing, such as apples, pears and cucumbers, can all help strengthen your teeth. All the chewing also disrupts bacteria-filled plaque and cleanses the teeth and gums.

If brushing were enough, would man have ever reached the moon? We think not.
