Your Diet and Your Oral Health

Let’s talk about your diet and your oral health. Diet as well as other lifestyle factors that affect your dental health, include:

Sugar consumption:

Consuming high sugar foods can lead to gum problems and tooth decay. Sugar consumption allows bacteria to attack your teeth and gums, resulting in plaque buildup. If not removed, this plaque buildup causes tartar to form on your teeth, which can only be removed by a dentist at an Implant Clinic UK.

Smoking:

According to an experienced dental care expert at Brighton Implant Clinic, smoking cigarettes, cigars and pipes can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer. Moreover, smoking products that contain tobacco can cause gum disease and pharyngeal or throat, cancer. Smoking can stain the teeth, making them look and feel unhealthy.

Drinking alcohol:

Alcohol consumption also contributes to dental health problems as it causes dehydration in your mouth. A dry mouth allows bacteria to attack the teeth and gums, leading to many oral health conditions According to research, alcohol consumers are less likely to maintain a good oral hygiene.

Medication:

Certain medications, such as some antibiotics, can lead to internal staining of the teeth, gum infections and tooth decay.

Changes in weight:

Weight loss or gain can affect the way your dentures fit. In order to have a good oral health, it is very important to maintain a healthy weight. Eating a diet that includes high-fibre vegetables and fruits can help you not only fight tooth decay but also maintain a healthy weight.

Make sure to visit an experienced dentist at a Dental Implant Clinic UK regularly to maintain a good oral health.
