Teeth-friendly Fruits & Vegetables No. 5: Carrots


You probably know that the foods you eat have an important impact on the health of your mouth. That vibrant smile you earn each day must shine through at all times. That’s why you should eat more carrots.

Why should you eat more carrots for better oral health?

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is important for many bodily functions, but it is significant for strong tooth enamel. When people eat carrots, the body absorbs the vitamin A and sends it to the tooth enamel. Stronger enamel helps your teeth fight off plaque, cavities, temperature sensitivity, and more. Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, but it must be strengthened regularly so that it will continue to protect your teeth.

A Cleaner Mouth

Carrots are some of the best foods to eat at the conclusion of your meal or as a snack. Carrots fight germs in your mouth that can cause bad breath and erode your perfect smile. An orthodontist will highly recommend carrots as part of a healthy diet because carrots stimulate the gum tissues and release saliva to naturally clean the teeth. Eating carrots after a visit to Nalchajian Orthodontics will protect the work done to your teeth and fight against new issues.
