Indulge in Cranberries This Fall, Your Teeth Will Thank You for It

Posted on 9/30/2016 by Boeckel
A pile of cranberries beside each other.Cranberries are a great tasting treat that are more abundant in the fall than at any other time of the year. However, they are not only great tasting, they are also great for your teeth!

Cranberries are known for their ability to help should you be prone to bladder infections, and in much the same way, they are also able to help against tooth decay.

If you are trying to keep your teeth caries-free, then cranberries should be a regular part of your diet, not only in the fall, but all year through.

Why You Want to Eat Cranberries

When you ingest cranberries, your body has a natural protective layer all over the inside of your digestive tract. This protective layer allows your body to let things that would otherwise hurt you or make you sick to pass right on through. The same goes with your mouth when you are eating cranberries.

The things that would normally stick to your teeth and cause decay or erode your enamel have a hard time sticking and are often swallowed down with whatever you eat or drink. This protective coating can help prevent cavities, and help you keep issues with tooth sensitivity under control.

Not all fall foods are as good for your teeth as cranberries happen to be. They are good for both the inside and the outside of your body, and they leave you better off for having eaten them. Take an extra step to help protect your teeth this fall and add cranberries into your regular diet.

Have them as craisins (no sugar added, of course), cranberry smoothies, cranberry sauce, or as a cranberry relish that you can put on top of the meats you are already eating.

One little berry can make a really big impact on your dental health so please, contact our office today!
