Doctor Oz played a game called Eat Your Teeth Clean because brushing and flossing are not the only way to keep your teeth healthy and clean – food can protect your teeth too. Do you know how to eat your teeth clean? I have actually heard multiple times that apples are the best way to clean your teeth, like in this article: Apples Brush Your Teeth! So I was not at all surprised to hear that there are foods that help to keep your teeth clean. I just wish that Dr Oz had elaborated a bit on why exactly kiwi and celery help to clean your teeth, but I think he had so much trouble “revealing the answers” that he got a bit flustered – poor Mehmet!
Dr Oz: Kiwi Cleans Teeth
Dr Oz’s first question was which fruit cleans your teeth: kiwi or strawberries? Dr Oz said that kiwis help to clean your teeth, though I was surprised that the answer was not strawberries because he said on a previous episode that strawberries can be used to help whiten your teeth (click here to read how to whiten your teeth with strawberries: Strawberry Teeth Whitener Remedy).
Dr Oz: Celery Cleans Teeth
Dr Oz’s second question was which vegetable cleans your teeth: celery or avocado? The answer is that celery cleans your teeth, but again this surprised me because I seem to always get those little stringy bits from celery stuck in my teeth!
Dr Oz: Raisins Clean Teeth
Dr Oz’s final question was which dried fruit will clean your teeth: raisins or prunes? The answer is that raisins will clean your teeth because they have antioxidants that helps to prevent bacteria from sticking to your tooth enamel.
