Are you interested in preventing cavities? If so, there are many things you can do to do so. In addition to brushing, flossing, rinsing, and visiting your dentist, Dr. Hoang Truong, regularly, you can eat certain anti-cavity foods. The foods recommended to eat include:

-Dairy products: Dairy products, like cheese, milk, and sugar-free yogurt, can help you prevent cavities because they can raise your pH levels, increase your calcium intake (which can strengthen your teeth), and help you produce saliva (which can help you wash bacteria from your mouth).

-Apples: There is a saying that an apple a day can keep the dentist away. This is because apples can promote saliva production as well as clean the surfaces of the teeth. So, don’t forget to pack an apple in your lunch box!

-Sugar-free gum: Now, we know you can’t actually eat sugar-free gum, but you can definitely chew it regularly! This is a great way to produce saliva without promoting cavities. So, try to chew sugar-free gum after each meal.
