Use these foods to boost dental health  

While there are many foods out there that are harmful to teeth, such as juices, candy and soda, there are also a few that can promote dental health. Recently, Bold Sky published an article explaining what things people can eat to promote a healthy mouth.

First, the news source suggested that people eat strawberries, which can work as a natural toothpaste. The information provider also recommended that people take a piece of strawberry and rub it over their teeth, and then brush it away after five minutes. Next, the news source said that people who want a brighter smile should grab some cheese.

"The acids in cheddar cheese fights plague, takes out food from the teeth and retains the pH balance in the mouth. Whenever you eat cheese, you start salivating. It is not because of the taste only! Cheese increases the secretion of saliva in the mouth," according to the information provider.

San Antonio cosmetic dentist John Moore recommends high-fiber fruits and vegetables such as apples and celery, which work as a detergent in the mouth, scrubbing teeth. It's also important to drink a lot of water, to help promote saliva production.
