Nutrition and Oral Health
Did you know that your oral health and your diet are inter-connected?
Research has shown that a balanced diet plays an important part in keeping your teeth and gums (as well as the rest of your body) healthy. Similarly, eating well and taking nutritional supplements can help you to recover more quickly from oral health issues or surgery.
Eating unhealthily can result in poor oral health, which in turn can lead to gum disease. On the other hand, sore gums or tooth loss can cause eating difficulties, which may lead to unhealthy food choices.
