Do not panic, if you have the plain kind, it’s fine. After all, it contains probiotics and calcium, which are both great for oral and overall health. But not all yogurts are created equal, even the Greek type can come with sweet fruit purees, adding a ton of sugar and acid to the mix. “You’re almost losing the benefits,” Dr. Rodriguez says.
Always opt for plain yogurt—it helps gums stay healthy, it strengthens teeth, it helps to balance the acids in the mouth and it also helps to fight bad breath. Add some fresh fruit to make it tastier!
