Do Vegetables Actually Make Teeth Stronger?Making your teeth as strong as can be is something that you should be doing. Many things that you eat provide your body with the necessary nutrients and vitamins that make it stronger to last longer.

The same goes for your teeth. Many vitamins and minerals that you choose to eat can help strengthen your teeth and even build the enamel on the outside, making them stronger. So what foods, including vegetables should you incorporate into your diet for better oral health?

Vegetables and Other Foods for Stronger Teeth

There are many foods out there that make teeth and other parts of the body stronger. Vegetables, like leafy greens are one of the foods that can provide the most when it comes to healthy vitamins and minerals. Even cheese and almonds can do wonders for teeth when it comes to the nutrients that are found within them.

Other foods high in phosphorous such as eggs, meat and fish are also important for teeth health. According to the American Dental Association, calcium is one of the best nutrients that you can enjoy for healthier teeth and bones. This also includes those that want a stronger jaw.

Vegetables are great for brushing the outside of teeth when you chew them, like carrots and celery. This brushes gently, while providing a nutritious snack at the same time. Everyone benefits when enjoying vegetables. Apples do the same thing when you have them as a mid-afternoon snack.
