Dr. Travis Storey knows the importance that nutrition plays in overall and dental health. Our hygienist is trained in dental nutrition and is able to discuss this with you at your dental cleanings. The American Dental Association recommends a dental cleaning 2 times per year in healthy patients, and 3-4 times a year in patients with periodontal maintenance and health concerns. Many overall health and dental issues could be prevented with good and proper nutrition. Avoiding foods that cause cavities such as sugary soda and candy can play a major role in your health.
Unfortunately, foods that may seem healthy for your body, can actually be unhealthy and really hard on your teeth. Acidic drinks such as orange juice, lemon juice, and tomato juices can actually be really damaging for your teeth. Large quantities of acidic foods like tomatoes, oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit can cause acid erosion on your teeth. Coffee, wine, and berries can stain your teeth making them appear dark so avoiding these types of things can improve your dental health and overall smile appearance.
