Drink Milk For Healthy Teeth

Does that sound too good to be true? I was looking up some information on my iPhone about teeth whiteners because I want my smile to be pearly white, when I came upon this interesting research. Apparently, if you drink milk on a regular basis, that can help to prevent tooth decay, which keeps your teeth healthier and whiter as a result.

Some teeth whiteners are controversial because people claim that they do strip away the enamel on the outside of the teeth, which can weaken the teeth as a whole. However, they do work to whiten your teeth for a while, but relying on dairy regularly within your diet will help to keep your teeth looking better overall. Teeth that had been exposed to milk within this study had less of their enamel eroded than the teeth that had been exposed to other liquids, like diet soda and orange juice. Obviously, many of these drinks are acidic and can compromise the enamel on the teeth, which is why it is great to rely on milk to make sure that your teeth healthy and beautiful. That's definitely something to smile about, and I'm grateful that I found this helpful information for the health of my teeth on my iPhone!
