Most people in the Livermore area know that a proper diet throughout your lifetime is important in maintaining good health. But you may not know how much your diet affects your dental health as well. For example, a diet low in certain nutrients can reduce your resistance to oral infections, possibly contributing to periodontal disease (gum disease) and decay.
Dr. Gibson and his professional staff can help you understand the role your diet plays in maintaining good oral health and how your immune system can control periodontal disease. And the earlier you implement these tips, the healthier your teeth will be over your lifetime. Information from Dr. Gibson can help protect babies and young children from early decay, saving them trauma and you money.
A balanced diet and effective brushing and flossing can reduce or prevent the risk of many dental diseases. For more information about how your diet and oral hygiene affect your dental health, or to make an appointment with Dr. Gibson, call Livermore Dental Care today at (844) 522-1891.
