In our office we stress the importance of a healthy diet. Quick snacks, soft drinks and fast food are a part of life. Unfortunately these foods have little nutritional value and can have detrimental effects on your teeth and gums. Good nutrition and oral health go hand in hand. When the bacteria in our mouth come into contact with sugar found in sweets or starchy food like ships, they produce acids that attach our teeth. Soft drinks just make it worse. All of this can compromise the health of your teeth and increase the need to restore your teeth back to health. Not to mention the fact that this can tarnish a beautiful smile. It is for this reason maintaining a healthy diet is important.
