Nutritional Counseling

Depending upon the age of your child and their dental health, they will be either given helpful information/tips on how to change their habits for the better or encouraged to continue the positive choices they are currently making.

What’s the connection between nutrition and teeth?

Good nutrition affects your overall health including your teeth. Hectic lifestyles, fast food, fad diets, and large amounts of sugar and energy drinks can all wreak havoc on our bodies and teeth. A poor diet can contribute to dental decay even at an early age. Even to those who are healthier, sticky snack foods that you think are fine can cause teeth problems.

Some of these problematic foods include:

  • Gummy bears
  • Taffy
  • Raisins
  • Jellybeans
  • Chewing gum
  • Dried fruits

Eating disorders, tobacco usage, and drugs can also cause long term harm to your teeth. Good nutrition affects your overall health including your teeth.
