You already have read the research that supports that wine, coffee, soda and other drinks and foods can be detrimental to your smile. With all the choices these days, it may leave you feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. You may even feel that no matter what you eat at some point it is going to damage the look of your smile, but here is a list of 3 foods that you can enjoy guilt free. Not only are they great for your teeth but they are good for your body as well.
1. Watermelon. The high concentration of water makes this an ideal treat for not only the summer but winter as well. The water removes leftover food from your teeth in between brushing and flossing sessions. There are no artificial colors to stain your teeth and it will leave you feeling great.
2. Peppers. Mix and match them or eat them raw. Peppers are another great food that contain a high-water concentration and will leave you feeling energized and ready for your day.
3. An apple a day. There is no getting around this one, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. The freshness, high water concentration and crunch of an apple makes this an ideal treat for your smile. The crunchiness encourages saliva production which keeps food from sticking to your teeth.
