Food and White Teeth 103: Cheese

There's growing evidence indicating that eating a small amount of cheese after a meal can potentially help to prevent tooth decay and promote enamel re-mineralization.

Not only does cheese contain a good amount of calcium, which supports strong and healthy teeth,  cheese helps create additional saliva in your mouth, which helps whisk away food particles stuck to your teeth so they do not have a chance to settle in and cause staining. Hard cheeses, such as cheddar, are the most effective, so add a 1 oz. piece after a meal that includes teeth-staining foods.
