This fall when everyone else is focused on Pumpkin Spice Latte’s and holiday fun, turn your holiday season into a healthy mouth campaign. There are plenty of delicious fall foods that can get your mouth in check and give you the healthy smile you want. There is no time to waste, because fall is right around the corner. Here is a list of 3 healthy fall foods that your smile will love.
1. Apples are fantastic any time of year, but they are especially great for your smile. The water in the apple helps to remove food from your smile in between brushing, and the crunch helps to keep your jaw in shape.
2. Pumpkins. The zinc content in pumpkins is great for your bones and can keep your gums in great shape. Consuming some pumpkin can help keep your gums from bleeding and they are a fantastic source of vitamins to keep you in great shape.
3. Don’t forget the carrots. They are a great source of vitamins not only for your eyes but for your teeth and jaw. The water in the carrots help to keep you from becoming dehydrated. A dry mouth increases the bacteria in your mouth and increases your risk of gum disease and other problems.
