Your Oral Health & Diet
A healthy diet is essential for your body to get the nutrients it needs for overall health and wellness. This includes your oral health too! Did you know that a poor diet can lead to oral health problems such as gum disease and tooth decay? At Aurora Dental Studio we can help with tips to keep your oral health at its best!
The acids produced from foods high in carbohydrates, sugars and starches can create plaque which leads to the destruction of tooth enamel. When these acids break down tooth enamel, they can lead to the formation of a cavity.
Sugars are the biggest culprit of tooth decay. However, almost all foods contain some type of sugar. This includes milk, fruits, grains and veggies too! We do need some of these foods for a nutritious diet and good oral health. Therefore, it is best to monitor food labels for sugar intake and create a balanced diet accordingly.
