Dental Benefits of Consuming Nuts Regularly

Posted on 5/25/2017 by Nicholas Dose
A pile of nuts beside each other.
Nuts should be an important part of your diet. They are full of protein, and most of them even have some of the fats that we should be eating more of.

Nuts are great for our bodies, plus they are really good for our teeth.

If you want to have a healthy snack on a regular basis, you may want to consider eating nuts. As long as there is no allergy to hold you back, your body is only going to be better off for making that healthy choice.

Why Your Teeth Will Be Happy if You Eat Nuts

With all of the nutrients your teeth will be washed in when eating nuts, your teeth will be happy. They will get access to omega fatty acids, tons of protein, and even antioxidants, which can help your mouth avoid oral cancer. Plus, as you chew up nuts, the broken pieces of nuts help to clean off your teeth.

However, you need to make sure you are eating them properly. First, don't try and chew on really hard nuts if you have a sore tooth. Get your teeth checked out first, to make sure there aren't fractures in your teeth. Second, don't try and open the shell of a nut with your teeth. This can easily crack your teeth and leave you reeling in pain.

Finally, don't chew on top of crowns or large fillings that you were warned by your dentist to be gentle with. It simply isn't worth the risk to your dental devices when you could chew on other teeth.

Give your body the benefits that come along with nuts. Let your teeth get the nutrients, plus the cleaning effect that comes with each bite. It can help your teeth look and feel great, and keep them strong and healthy!
