Nutrition plays a major role in both oral health and overall health making it a priority for our patients.
Benefits of Proper Nutrition for Our Dental Patients
Proper nutrition is the most important factor to improve immune system response, reduce inflammation, and improve healing. With a proper diet that includes lowered sugar intake, patients can drastically lower their risk for cavities and gum disease. Lowered sugar intake and a healthy diet also lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and other serious health conditions.
Taking the Right Steps Towards Proper Nutrition and a Healthy Diet
We offer blood tests for all of our patients that can identify your immune response to certain foods and environmental factors that can trigger inflammation. This is very important when we’re dealing with chronic joint pain (TMD) or periodontal disease. Our team can also help you identify sources of acid– either internal, GERD, or external sources from food and beverage. Reducing acidic exposure can improve the longevity of your teeth and reduce your risk for cavities.
