American Fork, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/02/2018 -- Palisades Dental of American Fork, UT, would like to advise local residents on some of the foods that are the most beneficial to one's dental and oral health due to their unique nutritional properties.

Many people know about the foods that are harmful to one's teeth, such as candy and more specifically, sugar. The healthful foods are often not as well-known or popular. Among other recommendations, Palisades Dental advises eating more dairy products such as milk, cheese, and yogurt. These contain significant amounts of calcium, not to mention that milk and hard cheese can decrease acidic levels, while yogurt's copious probiotics can help fight bad breath, cavities, and gum disease.

Palisades Dental also recommends eating leafy greens such as spinach and broccoli which contain calcium as well as folic acid, a B vitamin-type with the power to ward off gum disease. They advise eating nuts, especially cashews, almonds, and Brazil nuts, which are high in nutrients such as protein, calcium, and phosphorus.

Palisades Dental also advises eating apples and strawberries for dental health. Apples contain high quantities of fiber and water, with the fiber element stimulating and strengthening the gums as the water washes out bacteria and food particles. Strawberries, despite being highly acidic, are also chock full of antioxidants, Vitamin C, and malic acid, with the last of the three possessing the ability to whiten one's teeth.
