Teeth-friendly Fruits & Vegetables No. 1: Apples


Apples Offer Essential Nutrients for the Health of Teeth

If you are trying to find a nutritious food that will improve your smile, then apples are a great choice. This tasty fruit is available year-round and is especially plentiful in the autumn. Anyone wearing braces or aligners to straighten their teeth can probably eat a delicious apple as a dessert or snack, but it is a wise idea to slice it into bite-size portions to avoid damage to the brackets or wires of traditional braces. Of course, it is a good plan to ask your orthodontist if it is okay to eat apples while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

An Apple can improve Your Smile’s Appearance

Apples provide a lot of nutrients for your body, including vitamin C, B and K and minerals such as potassium and manganese. Anyone having problems with a dry mouth condition because they are wearing braces can benefit from the moisture contained in an apple. If you are unable to brush or floss your teeth while away from home, then an apple can help to remove food particles that are stuck between your teeth to prevent plaque buildup and halitosis. Fresh apples instead of cooked varieties that have added sugar are the best to consume and can improve the whiteness of your teeth to create a dazzling smile.
