When Your Toothbrush Isn’t Handy, Reach For Scrubber Foods!

scrubbers_ortho

WE’VE ALL BEEN IN SITUATIONS WHERE we’ve wished we had a toothbrush—but didn’t. Especially while wearing braces, you may notice that food lingers in your teeth. Ideally, you’d be equipped with the tools you need to brush and floss your braces after each meal and snack. But… we’re not all perfect.

Certain types of foods can help you in a pinch.

Introducing Nature’s Tooth Scrubbers

Scrubber foods naturally clean your teeth–not perfectly, but enough to help you smile with confidence. As you chew scrubber foods they remove plaque and leftover particles from other foods you’ve eaten. They also increase saliva flow, which helps clean your mouth as well.

Most Scrubbers Are Crisp, Firm, And High In Fiber

Here are a few common scrubber foods:

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Radishes
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Cucumbers

Chop Them Up To Make Them Braces-Friendly

You may have noticed that a couple of those foods are problematic for your braces. No worries! Just chop them up into bite-size pieces to get all the positive effects without making trouble for brackets and wires.

All of these foods are excellent at freshening your mouth. Use them at the end of a meal or after a snack. Remember that these foods cannot be used as a replacement for brushing and flossing. But, they can be little helpers until you get to your toothbrush.

Try It Yourself!

Try finishing up meals with scrubber foods instead of sweets and let us know if you notice the difference. You may never go back! Do you know of another great scrubber food that we haven’t mentioned? Share your tip below!

Thanks for your continued trust in our practice!
