Caring for your Perfectly Beautiful Smile

To avoid cavities, gum disease and more serious dental issues follow these tips:

What Special Dental Issues Should I Be Aware of as an Adult?

Even if you brush and floss regularly, you may face certain oral health issues as an adult. Visit your dentist regularly to prevent development of these issues.

What Effect Does Diet Have On My Oral Health?

In addition to greatly affecting your overall health, proper nutrition is necessary for healthy teeth and gums. Eating a well-balanced diet gives your gum tissues and teeth the important nutrients and minerals they need to stay strong and resist infections, which can contribute to gum disease. In addition, firm, fibrous foods such as fruits and vegetables tend to help clean the teeth and tissues. Soft, sticky foods tend to remain on the grooves and between teeth, producing more plaque.

Each time you consume foods and drinks that contain sugars or starches, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack your teeth for 20 minutes or more. To reduce damage to your tooth enamel, limit the number or between meal snacks and drinks. And when you do snack, choose nutritious foods such as cheese, raw vegetables, plain yogurt or fruit.
