Not only do these types of food lack any nutritional value, but most of them will also bathe your teeth in sugar, which leads to tooth decay. But did you know that there are also good foods that benefit your dental health, like cheese, calcium-fortified tofu, and leafy greens? Not only are these healthy but they also contain high amounts of calcium, which your teeth need.

Eating the right foods is just the tip of the iceberg in maintaining good dental health. You will, of course, want to get checked and cleaned by your dentist, to brush your teeth and floss — and to be guided by these 10 facts on

1.Pain and infection due to tooth decay could potentially cause problems not just with eating, but also speaking and learning. Know that dental disease has been linked to stroke, diabetes, and heart disease, among others.
