Share this post

april44Cheese is a tasty and versatile food that can be enjoyed on its own or added to numerous recipes. It is especially good for your teeth and bones, but it’s best to stick to traditional hard cheeses and to avoid more heavily processed cheese products to gain maximum benefits for your dental health.

Cheese contains calcium and phosphorus which help to strengthen your bones. It also has casein and whey protein which strengthens tooth enamel, reducing your risk of cavities. Chewing a piece of cheese will stimulate saliva flow, washing away excess food particles and bacteria, and reducing acidity levels.

It’s a great idea to choose cheese for a tooth-friendly snack, or why not finish a meal with a small piece of your favourite cheese.
