Eating fruits and vegetables is beneficial for your health because your whole body needs the vitamins that fruits and vegetables provide. Some specific fruits and vegetables are great for the health of your teeth and gums. Here's a guide to great fruits and vegetables for your dental health.

Apples and Oranges

All citrus fruit, such as lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruit, is rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for gum health. Your gums nourish and support your teeth, but they can't do it without vitamin C. Vitamin C regulates blood flow as well, which means that your gums will be healthy. Apples are a great natural toothbrush as well because it helps to brush bacteria away from your teeth.

Root Vegetables

Another amazing group of vegetables, such as carrots, celery, and turnips, have a large amount of vitamin A in them. Vitamin A is beneficial for your teeth and gums. The vitamin helps strengthen teeth and strengthen the support of gums as well. These root vegetables also act as a natural toothbrush.

Leafy Green Vegetables

Leafy green vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli, contain both vitamin A and vitamin C, as well as calcium. Phosphorous is a rare mineral that is vital for bone and gum growth and development. These veggies help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy.


The berry family is called a group of superfoods for a reason. Berries contain anthocyanins, which act as cavity fighters because they eliminate bacteria. The more berries you eat, the less chance you will experience tooth decay and gum disease. Berries also have vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber, prebiotics, and potassium, which are essential for blood flow. Berries can even fight inflammation.

If you eat a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, you'll be on your way to a great dental checkup.
