Which foods help keep your mouth healthy?

ANSWER

The best food choices for the health of your mouth include cheese, chicken or other meats, nuts, and milk. These foods provide the calcium and phosphorus your teeth need. For people who are lactose intolerant, green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach are high in calcium.

Firm/crunchy fruits and vegetables have a high water content and help wash sugar and acids from your teeth.
