So What Drinks Do My Teeth Like?One of the best drinks for your teeth is milk. It is rich in calcium, Vitamin D and protein, all of which are good for your teeth. If you drink skim milk, it is even better because it is low in calories and low fat. If you are lactose intolerant, try almond milk. It is also high in Vitamin D, protein and calcium.
The next drink is good, old-fashioned water. Water is excellent for your teeth because it acts like a car wash in between meals. Drinking water actually helps to clean your teeth and it is better than other drinks at this because it has no sugar content. As an added bonus, you can drink water with fluoride in it which is also good for your teeth.
Fruit juice is good as long as it is pure juice and not the sweetened, popular fruit juices. You will know you are drinking the right thing if you read the label and don’t see high fructose corn syrup. If you see pulp or chunks of fruit you will also know it is the real thing. But not all fruit juices are good, some are high in acid content, so stick with apple and pear.
Lastly, you can drink clear teas like white or green tea. These teas, with no added sugar or lemon, rinse your teeth and act as a saliva stimulant, the gift that keeps on cleaning. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more, please call us today at (503) 985-8945.
