Does My Dentist Care About My Diet?
The typical American diet tends to be high in calories and low in nutrition. If your body is lacking in important nutrients, the tissues in the mouth may have trouble resisting infection. These infections can lead to gum disease. We’ll use this post from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle to explain.
A few years ago, the U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled the MyPlate graphic to illustrate a healthy diet. Half of our meals should be composed of fruits and vegetables and the rest should be equally divided between lean protein, whole grains, and low-fat dairy.
At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle we want all our patients to have good dental and overall health. Patients from Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond come to us for complete general and cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Schedule an appointment today!
