|Nutrition and Healthy Teeth
Making good nutritional choices at an early age will help you maintain healthy teeth throughout your life.
Combining the right nutritional choices with proper dental maintenance helps to ensure proper oral care.
What happens if you don't take care of your teeth?
The accumulation of plaque, mucus, bacteria, and food residue (particularly from foods that are high in sugar and starch) builds up on the surface of your teeth, leading to decay and gum disease.
This build up of residue can be limited however by consistent brushing and flossing along with making smart and healthy food choices.
