Nutrition and Dentistry
Everyone knows that a balanced, nutritious diet is essential to healthy living. But did you know that eating patterns and food choices play an important role in preventing tooth decay and gum disease, too? Your mouth, teeth and gums are essential for chewing and swallowing—the first steps in the digestion process. Your mouth is your body’s initial point of contact with the nutrients you consume. So what you put in your mouth affects not only your general health but also that of your teeth and gums. In fact, if your nutrition is poor, the first signs often show up in your mouth. Missing teeth also lends to poor chewing and digestion which can also have an ill effect on your overall health. So, we advise patients to maintain optimal dental health, and good nutrition with a healthy diet to help maintain the overall good health of your body.
