The obvious answer to almost any health and beauty problem. Water has the ability to keep your mouth moist and fresh as it triggers saliva production. This helps to regulate your gums along with many other things. Consuming water on a regular basis clears the acidic contents that you might have had earlier and keeps your mouth free of stagnant particles. Drinking water will help flush-away unwanted particles from causing harm to your teeth. Its good for your entire body and should be part of your daily diet anyways so keeping your teeth clean is an added bonus.

Milk, cheese, yoghurt etc, all these products contain a large amount of calcium that is great for your teeth. Another important factor is that harder cheeses also assist in cleaning your teeth as they brush firmly against your tooth forcing food particles to come off. Now there’s my excuse to eat more cheese!
