Smile more with great dental care from your dentist near Marietta

For ages, ancestors have passed down certain tidbits of information intended to help us live better lives. One example is “you are what you eat.” Still used today, this phrase is the motto of many people who find dietary habits an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. More often than not, we associate what we eat with healthy bodies. The foods and beverages we consume also impact our smile. Part of the standard of dental care we provide to our patients from Marietta and surrounding areas is to assess teeth and gums, and discuss ways to handle the risk factors that affect oral health, including dietary habits.

There is significant evidence that connects the foods we eat with our oral health, which is reason to pay close attention to the impact of diet on teeth. Each person must take daily steps to prevent the development of cavities, and keep gums healthy and your breath fresh. Your dentist and hygienist see you approximately every six months. During these routine visits, we evaluate the teeth and gums for the presence of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. We provide professional teeth cleaning, and education on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums between dental check-ups. It is the home care that will promote optimal oral health.

When we make connections between our teeth and food, there are two types that tend to come to mind: milk, to keep teeth strong and white, and sugar, which should be avoided for the prevention of cavities. Milk is a natural assumption for healthy teeth because it contains calcium. This means that milk should be extremely good for our teeth, right? Not exactly.

First, we’ll take a look at sugar. This natural substance is most commonly associated with cavities. Sugar, however, does not directly cause tooth damage. Rather, it is an indirect cause. The bacteria that naturally live in the mouth feed on sugar, and then produce acid waste that eats away healthy tooth structure. Thus, minimizing sugary treats aids in the prevention of cavities.

Foods such as milk, cheese, nuts, and healthy protein do indeed build strong bones and teeth. When including milk as a regular part of the diet, however, it is important to keep in mind that there are natural sugars in milk. Of course, the type of sugar in milk may not be as harmful to teeth as the type of sugar in a soda. Still, brushing teeth, especially children’s teeth, after the consumption of milk, washes away sugar residue and reduces the food source for harmful bacteria. Brushing teeth to remove sugars is especially important before bed.

The foods we eat are fuel for our bodies, affecting everything from our level of energy to the state of our teeth and gums. The professional team at Thirty-Two Dental is here to help you enjoy your healthiest smile through ongoing dental care.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
