• Sweet Summer Treat

    Sweet Summer Treat

    Summertime brings out the sweet tooth in all of us.  From ice cream to cookies, there’s certainly no shortage of tempting treats to choose from.  Unfortunately, many of our favorites aren’t tooth-friendly.  Why not try a snack that is a summer staple, absolutely delicious and nutritious too?!?

    Watermelon is an excellent choice of summer fruit, packed with nutrients and vitamins that benefit your teeth while also being delicious.

    Watermelon contains all sorts of goodies that help contribute to better oral health in a variety of ways.  First off, it’s rich in fiber, which acts as a sort of natural toothbrush and can give your teeth a good scrubbing while you chew.  This helps prevent the buildup of dental plaque and lowers the risk of tooth decay while also cleaning away food debris and other particles.

    Eating watermelon stimulates the production of more saliva, which contains enzymes that breakdown unwanted bacteria and is also high in vitamin C which, among many other benefits, helps prevent gum disease.  With it’s high water content (around 90%), it is also good for hydration and your health.

    So be sure to take advantage of this tasty and healthy treat all summer long!
