Almonds are a great snack for many reasons, and you can add tooth protection to the list. These tasty nuts are high in calcium and protein, like cheese, but have the added benefit of crunch. Chewing crunchy foods naturally scrapes away plaque buildup and discourages more from forming.
Nuts are low in sugar (a tooth-killer) but relatively high in fat. It’s best to eat them sparingly each day by adding a quarter cup to your salad or stir fry, or enjoying them on their own as a snack.
