The real boost for a healthy smile is the dairy favorite: Yogurt.
Yogurt is good for your teeth and your breath. It’s packed with proteins and calcium, contributing to the strength of tooth enamel and the reduction of cavities.
Its good-for-you bacteria can also reduce the presence of hydrogen sulphide, a gas that smells like rotten eggs that can result from bacterial breakdown of organic matter (like the bits of food that get stuck in our teeth). This naturally-occurring gas is one of the main causes of bad breath. So as long as you commit to eating yogurt several times a week, and keep on top of flossing and brushing, you’ll have a healthier mouth and fresher breath.
