The Connection Between Oral Health and Diet
The old saying “you are what you eat” not only applies to your overall health but also your oral health. What you consume has a direct impact on the health of your teeth and gums. Eating a healthy and balanced diet can help promote good oral health by providing the necessary nutrients and vitamins to keep your teeth and gums strong. On the other hand, consuming too much sugar and acidic foods and drinks can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. In this day and age, it’s important to understand the connection between diet and oral health to make informed decisions about what we eat and drink, and to maintain good oral hygiene habits for optimal oral health.
