We all know it’s important to brush our teeth daily. And while sometimes that slips if you’re running late for work or are tired from a long day, you should still try your best to get back into the routine of brushing your pearly whites morning and night.
Cosmetic dentist Sonia Kohli told Well + Good said crunchy vegetables and sugar-free gum are good for your teeth if you don’t have a toothbrush to hand - but anyone with a weakness for a stinky blue cheese or a tangy gouda will be pleased to know that cheese is in the mix, too.
Cheese helps your mouth produce more saliva, which provides a form of cavity protection.
The phosphate and calcium levels within the cheese also naturally improves teeth and bone health and the mouth’s natural pH.
All in all, although these tips are super helpful, a regular cleaning is always best - so try not to forget the toothbrush.
