Go Nuts!

Posted on: February 3rd, 2016 | Posted by | Posted in Dental Blog



Go ahead: go nuts! Did you know that nuts are a source of many important nutrients for your teeth? Nuts contain calcium, magnesium, and phosphate—all of which your body needs to keep your teeth healthy.

Calcium is essential for bone health, and for keeping your teeth strong. Some studies suggest calcium could play a role in decreasing tooth loss! Magnesium helps in the formation of bone and teeth, and in the absorption of calcium. Phosphate also helps the body absorb calcium. Your saliva contains both calcium and phosphate ions, which help protect your teeth from bacteria.

In addition to being full of great nutrients for your teeth, nuts are a healthy, protein-packed and sugar-free way to snack. Almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts, pine nuts, and peanuts are all excellent options. So next time you’re reaching for a coffee break bite or midnight snack, grab a handful of nuts instead!
