Could Seaweed Be the Key to Optimal Oral Health?
Posted on 2/28/2019 by The team at DDI
When you think of seaweed, you likely think of gross wet plants. Seaweed, though, is a popular food. It's often used in cuisine in Japan and other countries that eat a lot of fish. What's interesting about this vegetable is that studies have also shown that seaweed can actually be very beneficial to your teeth and mouth. Even if you're not currently a fan of seaweed, you may want to give it a try after you hear about how it can improve your oral health. Seaweed and Bacteria Cavities are caused by plaque, a type of bacteria that builds up on the surface of your teeth. These bacteria release acids that eat away the enamel.

If it's possible to create a toothpaste derived from seaweed, it may help remove plaque in hard-to-reach places. Studies on seaweed and oral health are still ongoing. In the meantime, we can assist you in battling the plaque on your teeth with regular cleanings. Call us today to schedule one....
