It does help to keep your teeth cleaner, plus it typically helps you keep your calorie count down. However, you don't have to cut out all desserts all the time, if you want something sweet. You just need to pick the right sweet treats.
The Healthiest Sweet Treats to Enjoy
Frozen yogurt is often overlooked for the more flavorful ice cream, but it is a healthy dessert that nearly everyone in the family can enjoy.
You can get it in a wide variety of flavors, still add in toppings that you like (such as fresh fruit), and you get a lot of nutrition out of each serving.
Dark chocolate is another indulgent treat that gets overlooked a lot. Researchers have found that one of the chemicals in dark chocolate is actually just as good, if not better, for your teeth as fluoride at keeping cavities at bay.
If you want to indulge in something sweet one night after dinner, a low-sugar dark chocolate mousse or pudding may be the perfect treat!
Don't give up on dessert just to keep yourself healthy. Just opt for the healthy desserts when you do indulge. If you want to know what condition your mouth is currently in, ask your dentist.
They can tell you how healthy your mouth is, and then they can let you know what types of foods may help get your teeth even healthier. Stick with those suggestions when you can, and you are bound to find foods you not only like, but are also good for you, too.
