An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But what about the dentist? We have some good news regarding that: apples are tooth-approved foods! Keep reading to find out how apples may help shield your teeth and why they’re one of the few sugary foods we recommend. And if keeping the dentist away sounds as unhappy to you as it does to us, call us or swing by our office to set up your next exam.

Apples are sweet, but since they’re high in water, they are okay for your teeth. When you eat an apple, your oral cavity forms extra spit that washes away bacteria and debris. Most crucially, apples can stimulate the gums, leaving your mouth cleaner than it was before. The skin on apples, which is high in fiber, wears away plaque from the gums and teeth, helping you to fight gum disease. Pack a whole apple or some apple slices in your or your child’s lunches to get a good, mid-day teeth cleaning. And remember: an apple a day keeps the doctor away and the dentist happy!
