Nutrition Counseling in Wilmington DE

When it comes to your oral health, it isn’t enough to just brush and floss regularly. There are several other factors that can either benefit or harm the health of your teeth and mouth, such as the foods you eat and drink. Diet doesn’t only effect your general health, but is often a leading contributor to dental concerns such as tooth decay and gum disease. This is why Dr. Mark Gladnick offers his patients in the Wilmington, DE area nutrition counseling.

Nutrition Counseling

If you brush and floss daily, refrain from tobacco use and come in for regular cleanings, but still are having trouble keeping your oral health on track, you may want to take another look at your diet. Certain foods and drinks will expedite the tooth decay process and make it hard to maintain your oral health. While it isn’t always necessary to completely cut out these harmful foods from your diet, there are ways to minimize the negative effects they have on your teeth.

During your nutrition counseling appointment, Dr. Gladnick will discuss the concerns you have with your oral health and what you eat and drink on a regular basis. Diets high in sugar, acid, and carbohydrates can be the cause of many of your dental problems. When these sugars mix with the bacteria in your mouth, they create an acid that sticks to and eats away the enamel. Simply reducing the amount of these foods you consume and drinking more water can help get your oral health back on track and can boost your general health as well.
