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.
Both ladies who played this game won a box of all of the foods that keep your teeth clean along with a copy of Dr Oz’s You Book!
