The body is a powerful machine. What you eat directly affects the condition at which the body functions–yes, including your teeth and gums. When you lead a healthy lifestyle, eat right and take care of your overall health, there is very likely that your oral health will be in great shape, too.
Nutrition plays a significant role in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. The ‘cleaner’ and less processed your food is, the better. The more artificial and processed the food is, the worse it is for your overall health. Ask your physician, your nutritionist and your dietitian, and they will most likely recommend improving your health and eating habits the same way your dentist would.
Eating healthy directly affects tissue health and improves gum condition. Be mindful of your teeth and gums the next time you crave for your favorite snack or dessert. Make wise choices by making a balanced diet an integral part of your oral care investment.
Here is a quick guide:
At minimum, maintaining oral health requires brushing your teeth and gums at least twice a day, flossing daily and visiting your dentist regularly. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure–or a big dental case treatment. Consult your dentist to help prevent oral problems. After all, a beautiful smile is a quick way to change how you look.
