Positive Oral Health and Your Diet

Published on June 14, 2017

The link between the foods you eat and your health is real. To help you understand more, our team of professionals at Downtown Dental Associates in Cleveland, Ohio, is happy to give you some information on the foods that can improve your oral health.

Foods and drinks loaded with sugar create an acid that attacks your teeth, which causes cavities and could lead to gum disease. These foods and drinks are a serious threat to your oral health, as well as your overall body health. With so many delightful sweets and treats all around us, Dr. BJ Showman understands it’s sometimes hard to resist, which is why it is so vital to pay a visit to get your teeth checked regularly.

The good news is, there are many foods and drinks that are extremely healthy for your teeth. These items include tasty options like whole grains, vegetables, fruits, water, and even lean proteins like fish. These foods can help keep your teeth healthy and gums in top-notch shape. They can also help your complete body and lead to an overall healthy body and life.

If you still have questions about your oral health or feel it’s time to come in for a check-up, please call us today at 216.241.4303 to set up an appointment. Our professional and dedicated staff is always happy to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your oral care.
