  • These are only a few of the many varieties of fresh, ripe fruit that you will find this summer. Be aware that many of these fruits are high in acid, which can potentially cause damage to enamel. However, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t enjoy them. To help neutralize the acid, you can pair fruit salad with a glass of water. To neutralize acid effects, you can also combine your fruit with an unaltered food. This would be a good idea for nuts like almonds. A fruit dessert can be topped with an apple. Apples are high in water and can aid in the production of saliva. This saliva can be used to wash away food residues and bacteria. You don’t need apples to brush your teeth, but you wish you did.
