You don’t want to hurt your smile. You want to take great care of it. So you may try to limit your consumption of sugary foods. It’s a smart thing to do! Unfortunately, it’s not always easy.
This video illustrates how sugar is found in foods that seem healthy on the surface. It compares five breakfast food items to a glazed doughnut. Shockingly, oatmeal as served at McDonald’s has twice the amount of sugar! The good news is, the video offers some suggestions for alternative menu items that are better for your teeth – and the rest of you.
We’re happy to discuss nutrition with you when you visit us in Paducah, KY for your exams and cleanings. Modifying your diet can really help prevent cavities and other problems. If you are prone to dental decay, we may recommend preventive treatments such as fluoride and/or dental sealants. Another option is prescription-strength toothpaste.
