What Crunchy Foods Should You Be Including in Your Diet?
Tariq Drabu mentioned that crunchy foods can be just about anything, but obviously some are much healthier than others and will provide patients with the desire
Tariq Drabu advised that the bad crunchy foods which should never be introduced into your diet is chips and biscuits. While it is great to munch your way through a packet of chips, these can get stuck between and on your teeth. Unless you rinse right away and have dental floss at hand to clean between the teeth, the food will sit there on the tooth becoming a home for dangerous bacteria and causing serious problems in the long run.
The next crunchy food which should never be introduced into any diet is hard sweets, according to Tariq Drabu. So many people love sucking on hard sweets and they taste like fruit, which means they must be healthy, right? This isn't any further from the truth. Hard sweets can not only break your teeth if you bite down too hard, but they are brimming with sugar which is one of the leading causes of tooth decay.
Then there is the good things that you should be incorporating into your daily diet. Tariq Drabu recommends crunchy fruits which are brimming with healthy vitamins, such as apples and pears. Apples and pears provide you with the essential crunch you need to improve saliva production, they are sweet in flavour to give you that sweet taste you need to fulfill your urge, but they are not dangerous for your teeth.
Finally there are crunchy vegetables. Carrying a small bag of sliced carrots is a great snack between meals that will help improve saliva production and is completely safe for your teeth and gums. Consider carrots, celery and other crunchy vegetables over sweets and chips to ensure you incorporate the right crunchy foods into your diet moving forward.
