Diet and Dental Health Tips From Miami Dentist Dr. Papiernik

Diets low in certain nutrients reduce resistance to oral and dental infections, that is, periodontal disease (gum disease) and decay. A healthy immune system is essential to controlling periodontal disease according to Miami dentist Dr. Papiernik.

Consuming foods in the Four Basic Food groups will improve dental health and general health. The consumption of sugar, especially in sticky forms or in a baby bottle while sleeping, contributes to the rapid development of dental decay.

The trace nutrient fluoride, may not be adequately supplied by bottle or municipal water supplies. Supplementation with oral tablets and topical application will reduce the incidence of dental decay by more than 60%.
Together, a balanced diet, daily use of fluoride, effective brushing, and sensible eating

habits can reduce the risk of, or even prevent, infectious dental disease.
Please don’t hesitate to call our office if you need more information on diet or fluoride supplementation and its relationship to dental health.
