Best Juices for Your Oral and Overall Health

Posted on 7/23/2020 by Office of Dr. James A. Krippaehne
Best Juices for Your Oral and Overall HealthResearch results show that 100% fruit juice contains an excellent combination of compounds that promote your oral health and overall health. Compared to processed or diluted juices, whole juices come with a richer nutritional profile. Their benefits ultimately outweigh their drawbacks. On the other hand, processed juices come with highly acidic and sugary contents which are toxic to your dental and overall health.

But when it comes to nutritional contents, all 100% juices are not made equal. Some are nutritionally richer than others. Read on to find out the best juices that promote your dental and oral health.

What Fruit Juices are Mouth Friendly and Also Good for Your Body?

Juicy, leafy veggies like cabbage, chard, and collard greens endow your teeth with a rich variety of nutrients essential to their strength and stability. Dark leafy veggies like spinach and lettuce are a rich source of magnesium, phosphorous, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, beta carotene, and lots more.

Carrot juice is highly beneficial to your oral health, and chewing carrots is even more beneficial. Remember that the definition of mouth-friendly juices is those that contain most of, if not all the components of a fruit. The highly fibrous body of carrots can help stimulate your gums to fight off dehydration and other oral problems. Carrot juice is mainly rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene.

While processed citrus juice is not ideal for your mouth due to its highly acidic and sugary contents, wholesome citrus juices are actually mouth friendly. Wholesome citrus juice contains highly fibrous pulps that help wipe your tooth's surface. It can also massage your gums, stimulating saliva secretion, which helps neutralize the citric and malic acids, leaving only the beneficial contents of the juice behind. Apples are also highly fibrous and rich in nutritional contents. Remember, you can always call our office to get more information about the best foods and drinks for your oral and overall health.
