We all are tempted to have desserts! But, too many chocolates and candies can affect your waistline. Not only that, having desserts in excessive quantities can have deteriorating effects on your teeth. Now, it is usually quite challenging to refrain yourself from sweet candies and desserts. But, you would be amazed to know that some tooth friendly desserts exists. Let’s look at some of these desserts for healthy teeth:
Frozen Fruit Ice Cream
Frozen fruit ice-cream usually has two ingredients bananas and strawberries. This fruit ice cream doesn’t contain any actual cream. All you need to do for making this ice-cream is to cut a couple of bananas into chunks and then freeze them overnight or for at least twelve hours. Put the frozen banana chunks and some fresh strawberries into a food processor and then blend until it becomes smooth and creamy. Strawberries will give a sorbet texture to your ice-cream, and bananas will make your ice-cream creamier. Moreover, strawberries contain malic acid, which has a natural exfoliating effect and can help scrub stains from your teeth.
Roasted Pear Parfait
Do you know ice-creams made of yogurt are healthy for your teeth? One such delicious ice-cream made of yogurt is roasted pear parfait. It is healthy for your teeth because it is full of calcium. Yogurt in the ice-cream makes your mouth less acidic and fights halitosis. All you need to do for making a roasted pear parfait is chop a few pears and toss them with melted butter and cinnamon. Roast the fruit for twenty-five minutes and then layer it with sugarless yogurt.
You may have been hearing that dark chocolate is not good for your teeth. But, do you know that chocolate melts relatively quickly compared to other sweets, and is washed away by saliva? Ingredients and compounds found in dark chocolate don’t really cause tooth decay and cavities. But, of course too much of it can be harmful. Dark chocolate has significantly less sugar, which is better for your teeth than white or milk chocolate.
These are the three desserts for healthy teeth that will satisfy your hunger for sweet without affecting your oral health. We, at College Plaza Dental, will guide you if you want further suggestions regarding diet for healthy teeth.
