What Foods Can Be Used To "Brush Your Teeth" In A Pinch?

Posted on 10/19/2020 by Dr. Joshi
Did you know there are certain foods you can use to brush your teeth in a pinch? Your toothbrush is your best defense in keeping your mouth clean and your teeth free of cavities. In a perfect world, we will always have the time and ability to brush and floss the way we are supposed to. However, if you find yourself without a toothbrush you can chew on a few handy foods from nature to give you a temporary cleaning to tie you over until your next proper tooth-brushing session. Recommended Foods That Can Be Used to Brush Your Teeth There are some magical mouth-cleaning foods available to you when you need to brush your teeth in a pinch. Certain foods have a crunchy quality that produces a brushing effect on your teeth. These foods are typically high fiber, granulated, and sometimes gritty. There are specific foods that can be an excellent go-to source when you find yourself without a toothbrush. Tasty, natural snacks with a coarse texture help scrape slimy film, plaque, and bacteria from your teeth, gums, and mouth. Most raw vegetables offer superior cleaning power for your teeth, gums, and mouth. A few examples of these foods include apples and carrots. When you gnaw on these healthy veggies you get an added benefit of cleaning your teeth. The cellular nature of these vegetables is very complex and posses a unique texture that effectively breaks down undesired plaque and bacteria in your mouth. Celery is particularly beneficial as the strands in this vegetable work as a natural floss, getting between your teeth and cleaning with every crunch. Celery is also high in vitamin C, which helps prevent loosening of teeth or tooth loss. You might be surprised to learn cheese is a great food you can use to brush your teeth. Studies have shown that cheese can help prevent plaque buildup and tooth decay. This is due to lactic acid in cheese, which binds to the teeth when chewed. The lactic acid causes a reaction in your mouth that helps break up plaque and reduce bacteria. If you are really in a bind, you can pop a piece of sugarless gum to get a temporary tooth cleaning. Chewing on a piece of sugarless gum can activate your saliva, which is an aid to protect your mouth and helps keep it clean. Of course, the best solution to keeping your mouth healthy and clean is a good session with your toothpaste and toothbrush. But in this fast-past world we live in, it is not always an option when we are on the go. These tips on food that can be used to brush your teeth in a pinch can get you by until you can devote the proper care to your pearly whites. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us! We are always here to help and advise you with your oral care....
