Are All Carbs Created Equal?

Diet Changes For Healthier Teeth In Fresno

Hello, I am Dentist Art Mirelez of Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno. Today, we are focusing on diet and oral health.

I’m sure you brush and floss regularly and hopefully visit your Fresno dental practice for necessary cleanings, but did you know that making small but vital changes to your diet can improve your oral health?

Most Fresno residents are aware that the sugar found in candy, cookies, juices and sodas can harm your teeth, but some Clovis people don’t realize that all carbohydrates can cause cavities. A handful of pretzels or a piece of pumpernickel bread can have the same effect on your teeth as a fudge brownie.

All carbohydrates break down into simple sugars, which are converted into plaque, which can then cause cavities and gum disease. Carbs are naturally sticky and adhere to your teeth. Eating carbs with meals is healthier than eating them as snacks because more saliva is generated at mealtime. Saliva helps prevent food particles from sticking to teeth.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental, I continue to see tooth damage caused by sodas and sports drinks. If you choose to drink them, sip them through a straw. By limiting the contact of these drinks on your teeth, you will help preserve your enamel.

Another essential way Clovis residents can improve their oral health is to get 800mg of calcium a day for men and 1,000mg for women under 50. Calcium helps strengthen your jaw and secure your teeth firmly in the jaw bone.

Diet alone will not prevent cavities and dangerous gum disease for Fresno dental patients, however, wise eating promotes healthy teeth and gums.

My staff and I at Mirelez Wellness Dental are accepting new Fresno general and cosmetic dentistry patients in the 93704 zip code area. I encourage you to call 559-761-1871 today to schedule an exam and cleaning, if required.
