How to Enjoy Your Seasonal Favorites and Keep Your Teeth and Gums Healthy
It’s that season again. Trick-or-treat time and the holidays are close behind.
That means candy, sugary snacks, and all the “stuff” you enjoy. And frankly you should…enjoy it.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying your seasonal favorites. But it does increase the need for more proactive preventive dentistry.
Your teeth and gums are designed to last a lifetime. They are also an indicator of the overall condition of your dental health.
Poor nutrition combined with inconsistent or equally poor oral care can threaten the condition of your teeth and gums.
Want to keep your teeth for life? It’s necessary to monitor your diet and prioritize preventive dentistry.
Saying the words “oral bacteria” doesn’t cause much of a panic. But when you’re a victim of its damage…that’s scary!
Bacteria prefer to lurk on the surface of your teeth. They feast on the sugar that’s neglected or left behind.
When bacteria multiply they creep beneath your gum tissue. And when they’re ignored your risk can increase from decay and cavities to gum disease.
Your no-fear strategy
You have a way to eliminate the fear, enjoy your seasonal treats, and prevent tooth and gum damage.
1-Combine dental health awareness with your dietary choices
Eating right is the benchmark. It’s not easy and you’ll occasionally miss the mark.
What’s important is this…
Ask your Roswell dentist and dental hygienist about the combination of diet and oral hygiene. When in doubt…seek answers and solutions.
2-Give consistent attention to preventive dentistry
Start at home. Brushing and flossing are the go-to solutions for keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
