Good nutrition and a well-balanced diet is the best defence for your oral health. Both children and adults need to practice healthy eating and exercise to prevent oral health issues.
Children's Nutrition and Teeth
Children should have a diet that's rich in calcium and other kinds of minerals, as well as a healthy balance of the essential food groups. Fluoride supplements may be helpful but consult with our office first. Allowing your children to eat excessive amounts of junk food places them at risk for serious oral health problems, including obesity, osteoporosis and diabetes.
Adult Nutrition and Teeth
It is important to practice healthy eating and exercise all throughout your adult life to avoid dental and other health problems. Avoid food containing and excessive amounts of sugar to help prevent tooth decay. Visit your dentist regularly to detect and prevent oral issues.
