Don't let cheese be one of the fats you leave out. Go without oils when you can, but keep cheese into your diet as often as possible. Your teeth will thank you for it.
Cheese is a Great Thing to Add to Your DietThe main reason people typically increase the amount of cheese they eat is because of how much calcium it has in it. This is a great thing for your body, in that it helps keep your bones and your teeth as strong as possible. This is also beneficial for your mouth in general, as it stimulates saliva, which allows your teeth to get cleaner naturally.
However, the second reason to eat cheese may be even more important for your oral health. Cheese contains what is known as casein. This substance coats your teeth and protects them from some of the bad things that you eat.
When you eat a lot of cheese, this casein coats your teeth enough to keep the dangers of acids and decay away a lot more effectively.
People who are more prone to cavities should make sure they eat cheese daily. This can help protect their teeth from decay, and also keep acids from being able to do as much damage.
