Diets low in certain nutrients can reduce resistance to oral and dental infections including gum disease and tooth decay. A healthy immune system is essential to controlling periodontal disease. Counseling 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. Dr. Thrasher believes that a balanced diet, effective brushing and sensible eating habits can reduce the risk of, or even prevent, infectious dental disease. If you need more information on how a healthy diet can improve your dental health, please don't hesitate to call Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696.
When it comes to basic dental care, Dr. Thrasher will tell you that nothing tops brushing. If you choose to use a manual toothbrush, be sure that it is small enough to reach your entire mouth easily. Also, bristles that are too firm can cause your gums to bleed. Those who prefer something a bit more convenient and comfortable might consider an electric toothbrush. Be sure the head is soft and the bristles move in a back-and-forth motion.
If you have questions about your toothbrush, call us at (254) 848-6696 and we’ll be pleased to offer recommendations.
Developing healthy lifelong dental habits is the best way to prevent nearly every type of dental disease. Dr. Thrasher recommends that you brush your teeth twice a day with a good toothpaste, floss between your teeth every day, eat a balanced diet and limit your between-meal snacks.
Be sure to schedule regular dental care by calling Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696. By making smart food choices and following a healthy dental routine, you can dramatically lower your risk of developing tooth decay.
