Monday myth buster- do strawberries whiten your teeth?

Monday myth buster- do strawberries whiten your teeth?
We are fast approaching Strawberry season and this week's Monday myth buster is all about our favourite fruit.
You have probably heard in some form or another that strawberries can whiten your teeth. Could it be true that this famous Scottish berry could help give us shiny pearly whites?
This myth is in fact TRUE!
Yes, it is true that strawberries can whiten your teeth this is due to the enzyme malic acid.
Malic acid has lots of fantastic benefits it has antiseptic properties which are great for oral health. In fact, malic acid is so good for us that many people take it as a supplement to increase their overall health. More importantly to today’s myth, It can help break down stains on the teeth, therefore, improving the overall whiteness and appearance.
However, be warned the very same malic acid can erode the teeth and having large amounts can be harmful to tooth enamel.

The Childsmile nurse was so good with my son today. She interacted with him really well and had lots of patience, this is the first time he has allowed anyone to check his teeth and apply the fluoride varnish. Thanks so much!

Recently went for an emergency check-up at Huntly Dental Practice. If I’m honest I hate going to any dentist, but my dentist Amna Qureshi and her assistant couldn’t have made me feel more at ease. I couldn’t recommend the practice more, I had a full clean and my tooth fixed in 40 minutes! I will be using them for many years to come.
Thanks all!
I was absolutely petrified this morning about my wisdom tooth extraction. Mrs Saranya Rajkumar made me giggle and relaxed me completely. Every step was explained and I was asked if I was OK every few seconds. Mrs Saranya Rajkumar is the best dentist I’ve ever seen – such a lovely young lady and very professional but also sympathetic.
Thank you so much for not making me feel silly. Think I’ll actually enjoy dental visits from now on.

I have had a few visits here this year. Unfortunately I had to have a couple ofextractions and obviously was dreading the process. My dentist was Sarah Azeem and she was brilliant. She was thoroughly professional and very sympathetic to my fears. The extractions did not hurt at all and they healed very quickly. Sarah and all the staff were very kind, caring and supportive. I have no hesitation in recommending HDP, especially if you are scared of the dentist. My neighbour also dreads going to the dentist but she is very happy to attend here

Great practice, everybody friendly, the dentists are good at telling you everything they are doing if you are a nervous person.
Received excellent treatment at short notice from Amna. Several appointments were made to carry out root canal work. Done pain free by Amna who took great care to ensure the treatment was effective . Would love to get Amna any time. Excellent practice would recommend to anyone.
This is an excellent surgery in the whole of Aberdeenshire in my opinion.They have high standards, their diagnosis is very good and so is their service. I have been particularly pleased with Dr. Saranya. She is very good at her job.
