Few foods are better for our health than fruit. Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, fruit is nature’s superfood. But as our dentist at Perry L. Jeffries, DDS and Associates, PA, not all fruits are created equal when it comes to our teeth. Some varieties contain higher amounts of sugar and acids, while others may cause staining.
Here are a few hand-picked suggestions about which fruits are the best and worst for those precious pearly whites.
Our dentist reminds patients that most fruits are beneficial to your health in ways beyond your teeth. As long as you're enjoying them in reasonable quantities and brushing or rinsing afterward, the benefits are likely to outweigh the drawbacks.
There’s no better way to safeguard your oral health than regular examinations and cleanings with our dentist at Perry L. Jeffries, DDS and Associates, PA. While dental visits are recommended at least once a year for most of us, others may need to come in more often, depending on their oral health. Please contact our office today to schedule a visit.
