Saying Cheese Is Healthy Than Eating?


Ever wondered why we have chosen the word "cheese" to smile for photos? Whatsoever the reason, we smile. But little did we know the effects of cheese on our teeth in literal senses. We may smile in photographs but definitely are unaware if cheese is good enough for our teeth or not.


We're not being cheesy but cheese has multiple dental benefits. Let's unfold them - 


  • The protein in cheese coats or shields the teeth with a protective film from the acids.
  • Stimulates the saliva production in our mouth which helps our mouth get rid of bacteria, sugar and acid.
  • Enhances the resistance to enamel damage.
  • Contains plenty of calcium which plays a major role in building strong bones.
  • A rich source of vitamin D, that enables the absorption of calcium from the meals.
  • Contains high amounts of vitamins A and B12, along with zinc, phosphorus, and riboflavin.


Not just your oral health, but it has ample benefits for your overall health as well. It has been recommended that if you add cheese in moderation to your diet plan, the chances of catching cavities and tooth decay will be significantly reduced.


However, you shouldn't skip your regular dental appointment nor should you take your daily toothbrush regime lightly. Your teeth can be healthy with the combination of cheese with a solid dental care regime.
