Do you enjoy snacking on almonds? If so, we’ve got some awesome news for you! Almonds are an awesome, tooth-healthy snack. Here are some reasons we’ve put together explaining why almonds are so awesome for your teeth and what you can do to allow them to help boost your oral health:

Almonds are very easy to snack on, just as are candies. Unlike many candies, almonds don’t contain much sugar, meaning they won’t accrue as much plaque (and eventually tartar) on your teeth. Feel free to enjoy a handful of almonds once and a while! The calcium and protein in almonds also protect and support your teeth against hurtful bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease. Next time you’re reaching for a bag of jelly beans, consider enjoying some whole almonds instead!

To put more almonds to your diet, think about bagging some as a snack in your lunch. They’re enjoyable thrown onto salads, and they can add a kick to chicken meals. If you’re lactose intolerant, almond milk (unsweetened) can be a fitting swap-out for milk.
