Cheese is good for your teeth!

So says Dr Mervyn Druian of the London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry. This follows findings from an international team of experts and published in the Journal of Epidemiology.

As well as being sugar free, cheese also stimulates salivary flow and saliva contains substances that neutralise the build up of acid after eating. So the more saliva you have in your mouth, the more it will break down any sugar and so reduce dental decay. Cheese might also be helpful in reducing tooth staining because more saliva means more to wash away wine and coffee. So that’s great news for a proud cheese making county like Gloucestershire! Protect your teeth and enjoy (and support) your local producer. Historic names like; Charles Martell & Son based in Dymock, makers of the now infamous Stinking Bishop, Smart’s, Godsell’s Church Farm and Wick Court Cheese all supply famous Gloucester cheeses and Tewkesbury Dental can now happily encourage our patients to enjoy them!
