“An Apple a Day!”

How do apples affect our teeth? Autumn is filled with pumpkins, hayrides, cider and… apples! While the ADA suggests avoiding sugary foods, apples are a great way to provide your body with fiber. The act of chewing an apple increases saliva in your mouth, which rinses away bacteria and food particles. The crunchy texture of apples stimulates your gums and help clean plaque from teeth and freshen breath. Pack an apple or apple slices in your lunch to refresh your mouth after a meal. Apples are a great option to tide you over until you have a chance to brush your teeth. If you need to make a dental appointment, please call our Westerville office @ 614-882-2249. :)
