Yes in fact they are. The #1 chronic childhood disease – dental caries or cavities – is actually an infectious disease.
Since babies spend a whopping majority of their time with their mothers, it’s likely that they “catch” tooth decay from them.
We have all heard that drinking milk is good for our teeth, but why?
Based on current research, as reported by Nutrition Australia, milk and dairy products such as cheese can actually reduce tooth decay.
Not only do they contain calcium (Calcium is essential to our well-being, whether we are old, or young. During our formative years, calcium helps strengthen and increase bone mass in our teeth. and phosphorus that strengthen and repair tooth enamel but also proteins called caseins, which combine together to form a protective film on the enamel.
This coating helps to prevent your teeth from incurring decay caused by common bacterial acids.
So eating a piece cheese after a meal can help reduce the chances of Tooth Decay!!
A great reason to encourage your children to drink, eat healthy yogurts and cheese.🐄
