The Best Foods for a Healthy Mouth

Richview Family Dentistry has a list of the best foods to help you maintain a healthy mouth


  • Milk, cheese, and other dairy products are low in sugar which is good for your dental health. 
  • Dairy products contain protein and are full of calcium, which can help strengthen your teeth leading to a healthy mouth.


  • Phosphorus-rich foods such as meat, poultry, fish, milk, and eggs help to strengthen your teeth and contain valuable nutrients and protein.

Fruits and vegetables

  • Fruits and vegetables are not only an essential part of any balanced diet but can also be good for your teeth.
  • They are high in water and fiber which helps to balance the sugars they contain and help to clean your teeth.


  • Nuts contain protein and minerals essential for overall health.
  • Nuts that are low in carbohydrates don’t add to your risk of cavities because tooth decay is caused by acid-producing bacteria that are activated by carbs.
  • Chewing nuts also stimulates saliva production which can reduce your risk for tooth decay.


  • Water right out of the tap is the best beverage for your oral health. Clarksville’s water is safe to drink and is fluoridated.
  • Fluoride helps to make teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that can cause cavities. 

Of course, Richview Family Dentistry recommends brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily to maintain a healthy mouth.
