Not only does cheese provide large amounts of much-needed calcium, cheese is also considered to be a cavity fighter! Cheddar, Swiss, Mozzarella and Monterey Jack stimulate the body's salivary glands to clear the mouth of debris and protect teeth from the acids that weaken them. That means that cheese disrupts the development of cavities, especially when eaten as a snack or at the end of a meal.
The next time you reach for a quick snack, choose some cheese or a glass of milk and remember that with each bite, and every sip, you are preserving your teeth for a lifetime of smiles and good oral health!
