We always think of ways to keep various parts of our body in a tip-top condition. We eat avocado for glowing skin and protein to build up muscles but most of us give little thought to our oral health.

According to dentists, it is important to have essential nutrition for teeth and toothpaste don't exactly cover that area. While eating, teeth play the biggest role, hence, it’s very important to keep them healthy.

To improve your dental health, you need plenty of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K2 and E. These vitamins are all missing from most modern diets in epidemic proportions.

Here are some food items that we should consume to keep our teeth healthy:

Cheese

It is the precious ally of teeth. Cheese contains calcium and phosphorus that infiltrate the layer of plaque surrounding teeth and prevent erosion. It protects our teeth from the cavity and refrains the acidic creation between our teeth.

Milk

Moms always run around kids and even behind grownups forcing them to have milk, but do they succeed? Hardly! Milk contributes to strong bones as it contains calcium which helps our teeth and gum to fight against oral diseases and keep your jaw bones stronger and healthy.

Yogurt

It is high in calcium and protein. Including yogurt in our daily diet is a good option for the strength and health of teeth. Probiotics or beneficial bacteria found in yogurt is good for gums as they crowd out bacteria that cause cavities.

Kale and Spinach

Green leafy veggies find their way onto any healthy foods list as they are full of vitamins and minerals. Leafy greens such as kale and spinach promote good oral health. They are high in calcium which builds teeth enamel. It also contains antioxidant which helps us to keep the mouth microbiome healthy and keep bacteria at bay.
