Did you know that celery can be great for your teeth? It’s true! Celery is one of the best things you can eat for your mouth, and it’s even been defined as nature’s toothbrush. Find out slightly more about this dental health-booster by going over this post, and feel free to ask us about good diet choices for oral health at your next appointment in our Vineland, New Jersey, office.

Celery is defined as nature’s toothbrush since the natural fibers that grow in it make it excellent for cleaning away plaque, leftover debris and the bacteria that so often associate with them. What’s more, celery strengthens the well-being of your teeth through the vitamins it contains. It contains vitamin A, which helps mucous membranes, and vitamin C, which can save your teeth from getting loose.

Of course you can eat celery by itself, but it’s also good with dips like guacamole and hummus. Celery is good in salads, whether leafy green salads or salads such as pasta salad or chicken salad. And no celery recipe suggestion list would be whole without suggesting ants on a log! (Just go easy on the ants.)
