While brushing and flossing are incredibly beneficial to the health of your teeth, what you eat and drink on a regular basis can contribute to dental problems. A diet full of sugar and carbs can lead to tooth decay, and late night snacking can create problems with both cavities and gum disease. We offer nutritional counseling to help shine a light onto your current diet and changes that you can make to improve your eating habits. This counseling is available to all of our patients regardless of age, gender or weight.
The problem with eating a diet that is full of sugar is that it isn’t just detrimental to your overall health, but to the health of your teeth as well. The bacteria in your mouth thrive on sugar, which causes them to multiply rapidly. This can lead to problems with excessive plaque, cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. Your children have poor diets, especially in this fast-paced world that we live in. However, in order to save your smile and prevent a future of dental treatments, proper nutrition is key.
Everyone is a good candidate for nutritional counseling. We take a judgement-free approach to our counseling services and simply go over your current diet and make suggestions of changes that you can implement to improve your oral health. Whether you’re average weight, overweight or obese, many people have poor eating habits. Your children can benefit from nutritional counseling in our office. If you think your child would benefit from Nutritional Counseling, call us today so that we can get you in for a quick and convenient appointment.
