“An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away”
Since the 19th century people have been using this phrase. It obviously not alluding that individuals who eat apples never have to see a doctor, but apples certainly have great health benefits for our bodies. Apples help teeth health as well!
What Does Research Say?
“Chewing a crisp apple can help brush away any debris on our teeth.” This could be a myth, some studies have shown a higher amount of plaque on teeth after eating an apple. But there is proof that shows some polyphenols in apples can lower the ability of cavity causing bacteria to thrive on teeth. Other studies have also shown that the antioxidants in apples can help prevent disease in the mouth.
Apples interestingly contain fluoride! Did you know that fluoride is essential in helping prevent cavities?
Chewing an apple produces saliva, and saliva helps wash away any debris left on your teeth. Although, apples do contain sugar and acid so too much of a good thing is not good! But rinsing your mouth with water after eating an apple can be beneficial.
Apples are good for our teeth health. But is there something even more important for our teeth health? Regular dental visits along with faith tooth brushing and flossing.
