Eating cheese can help to fight against cavities.

Eating cheese, particularly as a snack -reduces the acids that cause cavities and gum disease. Cheese stimulates saliva production, which is body's way of keeping mouth at a normal acidity level. The saliva helps remove any residues in the mouth, and also provides a buffer against high acidity. Cheese also helps re mineralise teeth surrounded by acids. Cheese increases dental plaque pH and thereby decreases the risk of cavities and gum disease. Eating a diet rich in dairy products is important in maintaining good health, and its especially vital to bone health. A pH level below 5.5 indicates that the person faces a risk of tooth erosion, where in tooth erosion wears away.This makes the teeth vulnerable to dental cavities and other problems.A pH level of above 5.5 indicates a reduced risk of developing cavities.
