A Healthy Mouth, A Healthy You

Did you know that your mouth is a part of your digestive system? And did you know that each system in your body relies on one another? That is why it is so important to be mindful of what you are ingesting.

Coffee
Did you know that is not coffee that causes harm to your teeth, it is actually the amount of sugar you are putting in it! The only problem with some types of coffee is that it can dry your mouth which causes harm to your teeth inadvertently, and the possibility of stain.

Alcohol
If you need another reason not to drink excessively, we’ve got one for you. Alcohol consumption causes your body to become dehydrated, which directly relates to dry mouth. If your mouth is dry and on able to produce saliva appropriately, you are more susceptible to tooth decay and oral infections.

Candy
Everyone knows that candy is bad for your teeth.  Specifically, the issue is the quantity of the candy intake. If you’re eating candy here in there and making sure to brush her teeth afterwards, more than likely you’re going to be okay. However, if you are ingesting multitudes of candy as well as hard candy you can be at risk of shipping it to or increasing the rate of decay.

Citrus
Did you know that fruits height and citrus can’t Road the enamel on your teeth? Enamel is the part of your tooth that protects it from decay, without it your tooth is more susceptible to harm.
