Grapes to aid dental health? Everyone knows that eating crunchy fruits and vegetables can help strengthen teeth and give your jaws a workout but new research indicates that eating squishier grapes may also benefit dental health.

According to new information published in the Journal of Nutrition, eating grapes or grape products may have a host of health perks, including improvements to cognitive function in the elderly and people's dental health.

In other words, that glass of wine or green grapes have a ton of naturally occurring healthy plant chemicals that may be a good part of anyone's dental care routine.

Dean Dr John Pezzuto at the University of Hilo in Hawaii explained that grapes have "chemical classes of natural compounds which are capable of mediating biological responses against a variety of targets."

However, the American Dental Association always advises that adults brush and floss at least two times each day to clear teeth of food debris and sugars that may cause cavities. Fluoride toothpaste is a good tool for those who want to continue to practice good dental care.
