Dietary Fibre and Your Oral Health

The physical act of chewing is essential to help maintain a healthy mouth. In order to get the maximum benefits from dietary fibre it’s important to eat foods that are high in fibre, such as fruits and vegetables. Eating fruit and vegetables help remove dangerous food particles from your teeth and by chewing thoroughly, you produce more saliva in your mouth which rinses away bacteria and food particles. Chewing your food stimulates salivation which helps protect your teeth from sugar, acid and bacteria that can cause cavities. Saliva contains antibacterial properties, which coat the teeth making it hard for bacteria and food particles to cling to your teeth’s surface.
