What you eat plays a major role in preventing or promoting dental caries or gum diseases. In dentistry, too many sweets, juice and even sports drinks can damage your teeth. The inability to take the right amount of nutrients can also make your mouth prone to infections.
There is a need for brushing, flossing and regular dental check-up to maintain a healthy set of teeth and gums. But what we eat and drink on a daily basis can also have a role to play on the teeth, gums, and the overall dental health.
There is well documented relationship between what you eat and your oral health. Diet affects your teeth, the pH in your mouth, and plaque build-up.
You are what you eat. Not only will it be evident on your mouth, but also in your overall health as well.
By following a healthy diet and following what your dentist taught you about proper oral hygiene, your teeth will remain healthy.
Please ask your dental specialist at SunnyView Dental regarding a nutritional consultation. We will review your current diet and suggest ways in which you may improve your dental health by making minor variations to what you eat. Nutritional consultations are especially important for children.
