Do you like snacking on almonds? If so, we’ve got excellent information for you! Almonds are a great, 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 improve your oral health:

Almonds are easy to snack on, like 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 consume a fistful of almonds once and a while! The calcium and protein in almonds also help to defend and strengthen your teeth against destructive bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease. Next time you’re reaching for a bag of jelly beans, try enjoying some almonds instead!

To put some more almonds to your meal plan, try bagging some as a part of your lunch. They’re yummy thrown onto salads, and they can add a subtle kick to chicken dishes. If you’re lactose intolerant, almond milk (unsweetened) can be a fitting substitute for milk.
