Diet tips for healthy teeth and gums:

  • Eating raw fruits and vegetables massages the gums, which increases salivation and neutralizes the pH of the mouth.

  • Include plenty of foods rich in vitamin C in your diet, like oranges, kiwis, papaya, strawberries and guava to keep your gums strong and healthy.

  • Drink 1-2 cups/day of green tea that contains catechins, a substance that kills bacteria.

  • Drink Aloe Vera juice early in the morning to prevent mouth ulcers and bleeding gums.

  • Sipping water throughout the day helps to keep the gums hydrated.
