How foods and drinks can affect your oral health
from Santa Clarita Magazine
Have you ever given thought to how what you eat, and drink can affect your oral health? Two of the most prevalent diseases, tooth decay, and periodontal or gum disease, may be preventable by changing your diet. Decay is a result of acids produced by oral bacteria destroying your teeth and other hard tissues of the mouth. Certain foods and drinks will leave you at a higher risk for dental problems. Although acidic foods, such as lemons and limes, may be delicious, frequent exposure can erode your enamel. The erosion will lead to tooth decay and potentially periodontal disease.
