Dentist Alpharetta: Who Moved My Cheese?

cheeseOr ‘ate my cheese’, because dairy products may be good for your oral health.  A new study suggests that consuming cheese products may help protect your teeth against cavities.  So not only do you get strong bones, you get healthy teeth.[1]

The study sampled 68 patients ranging in age from 12 to 15 and found a higher pH level in those that consumed cheese, which may have induced a higher saliva level from the chewing, suggesting that cheese has anti-cavity properties.  Additionally, various compounds found in cheese may adhere to tooth enamel and further help teeth from acid (found in wine for instance) erosion.
