There are many ways to improve your child’s smile, from regular dental checkups to pediatric crowns. Adding healthy foods to your diet is a great way to improve your family’s oral health – and their overall health too. 

This short video has some great suggestions for nutritious foods that will do some great things for your family’s smiles:

  • Strawberries – The berries contain malic acid. It increases saliva flow. This helps wash away bacteria and other harmful substances before they can cause cavities and other problems. They also have bacteria-fighting antioxidants.
  • Apples – Like strawberries, apples contain malic acid. In addition, their crunchy texture helps scrub food particles from your teeth – almost like a natural “toothbrush.”
  • Broccoli – This vegetable’s texture also helps it function like a “toothbrush.” Consuming it raw is the best way to clean teeth. Broccoli is also packed with iron, which helps prevent dental problems. 
  • Cheese – Many kids, and adults too, like cheese. Fortunately, it’s great for smiles. It contains phosphorus, protein, and calcium, three substances that strengthen your tooth enamel.
