The foods you eat and the beverages you drink play a bigger role in dental health than many people are aware. Here at Kennedy & Limardi Family Dental, is it our goal to take every reasonable measure to help you to have cavity-free free teeth and strong, vibrant gums now and in the future. That includes your visits here for routine checkups and guiding you as to your oral hygiene at home, as well as the link between nutrition and the state of your teeth and gums.

You probably hear a lot about the association between diet and wellness. This applies to your teeth in two ways. First, healthful foods and drinks keep your teeth and gums in optimal shape, which is important in and of itself. Healthy tissue is the result of a healthy lifestyle. But there’s more that our Buffalo Grove dentist office wants you to know about. Sugars and starches are the very fuel that result in dental plaque forming on your teeth, between them, and at the gum line, too. You can’t see dental plaque, but that does not stop it from causing you a variety of problems, from cavities to tooth infections to loss of teeth. And your gums are most certainly not immune to its impact. Irritation and redness are the common symptoms of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, and for which our Buffalo Grove dentist office will treat with a teeth cleaning. And later on, inflammation and infection can cause everything from persistent bad breath to bleeding while brushing your teeth, receding gums, and possibly the loss of gum and bone tissue. Less sugar and starch in your diet will leave less dental plaque for you to address with your toothbrush and dental floss.

Please reach out to our Buffalo Grove dentist office to book your next checkup and teeth cleaning.
