Romantic Foods That Are Also Great For Your Teeth!

Romantic Foods

With Valentine’s Day approaching, you may be starting to plan the menu for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, meaning you’ll be researching aphrodisiacs! For the most part, aphrodisiacs don’t actually work, at least not in the way they’re advertised. However, it is true that there are a few certain foods that can stimulate hormones and elicit feelings of romance.

While we may not be sure of the science behind how this works, we do know which of these foods happen to be good for your teeth, providing you with the best of both worlds!

Healthy, Romantic Foods

Below are romantic foods that are actually great for your dental health as well:

  • Almonds – Almonds are packed with selenium, which is a nutrient shown to increase fertility. In addition to selenium, almonds also contain calcium, which will strengthen your teeth.
  • Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes are packed with folic acid, which helps to boost fertility and the health of pregnancies. Sweet potatoes also contain plenty of vitamin C and beta-carotene, which means they’re great for your smile as well.
  • Oysters – Oysters are rich in amino acids, which will trigger a hormone response. If this is your choice of romantic food, be sure to serve the oysters raw. Otherwise the amino acids may break down, making them useless. Oysters also contain magnesium, which makes your teeth stronger.
  • Chocolate – We all know that chocolate has a reputation for romance. In fact, you may receive a heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day! Chocolate contains serotonin, which is literally called the ‘cuddle chemical.’ Because chocolate melts away quickly and doesn’t spend as much time on your teeth as stickier candies, it comes with a decreased risk of cavities and tooth decay.

If you plan on doing any kissing this Valentine’s Day, be sure to schedule an appointment with SpringRock Dental to receive a dental cleaning and exam. This will ensure that your teeth are clean and your breath is fresh for your valentine! To make your appointment, please contact our Aurora, CO dental office today!
