We had a wonderful submission from Bright Side Dental, sharing a simple-to-read infographic about food and oral health. We wanted to share their message to patients with you today for inspiration and sharing!
Most people would probably agree that proper dental care is an important aspect of your overall health, unfortunately not everyone takes the necessary preventive measures by visiting their dentist at least twice a year for a check up. Dental offices can of course assist you with any dental troubles that you may run into, but you’ll be much better off if you can prevent those troubles from occurring in the first place. If you live near Indianapolis, Austin, or anywhere in Southeastern Michigan you are never far from a Bright Side Dental dentist office that will be happy to have you in for a regular check up.
Aside from your regular dental check up there are also things you can do on your own to decrease the risk of cavities and discolored teeth. Knowing how certain foods and drinks affect your teeth is one way to stay on top of your own dental health. It’s not likely that you’ll be able to keep track of every single last thing that you eat, inevitably some of what you eat (even healthy things) will naturally wear down your teeth in small ways. Fortunately Bright Side Dental made this infographic which will give you a quick overview of the types of food that can do the most harm to your beloved teeth. If you use this as a handy guide you will have a general idea of what to avoid, or at least what to cut down on. Being well-informed is the first step to protecting the long term health of your teeth.
