Do you like snacking on almonds? If so, we’ve got awesome information for you! Almonds are a helpful, tooth-healthy snack. Here are a few reasons we’ve amassed explaining why almonds are so useful for your teeth and what you can do to allow them to help strengthen your oral health:

Almonds are snackable, just as are candies. Unlike many candies, almonds don’t contain much sugar, meaning they won’t accumulate as much plaque on your teeth. Feel free to eat a fistful of almonds occasionally! The calcium and protein in almonds also help to protect and support your teeth against harmful bacteria that can grow cavities and periodontal disease. Next time you’re thinking about a bag of jelly beans, try enjoying some whole almonds instead!

To incorporate some more almonds into your diet, think about bagging some as a part of your lunch. They’re tasty placed onto salads, and they can add a kick to chicken and fish dishes. If you’re lactose intolerant, almond milk (unsweetened) can be a suitable swap-out for milk.
