The Effects of Not Flossing Enough Grow Over Time
It is one thing to forget to floss now and again. However, studies have shown that nearly a third of adults forgets to floss altogether. This is a problem as it can affect the health of your mouth in a very profound way. The longer you go without flossing properly, the more plaque builds up between your teeth. This can lead to cavities, gum disease, and if left alone long enough, even tooth loss. Call us today to let us take a good look between your teeth. If there are any problems, we can treat them now before they become even larger problems.




Dental Concerns When On the Paleo Diet
Going on the Paleo diet can be great for your health. However, it can do a number on your teeth if you are not careful about what you pick to eat. Many people are turning to the Paleo diet for simplicity in their dietary choices. This is a great way of making mealtime easier to figure out. However, if you do not carefully monitor what you eat, you can wind up with oral health problems as a result of your dietary change.

What the Paleo Diet Can Do to Your Teeth

The Paleo includes eating a wide array of meats and produce. You will find yourself eating tons of protein, along with lots of fruits and vegetables. If you are not used to eating a ton of vegetables, and you used to eat dairy, you will likely have a dip in your calcium intake. This can result in weaker bones and teeth. You need to make sure that you eat vegetables that are incredibly high in calcium, such as spinach or kale. This way, you keep up with how much calcium your body needs and don't risk your health by switching the foods you eat.

If your doctor and you believe that your body could benefit from a switch to the Paleo diet, then enjoy the change. Just make sure that you keep up with your body's needs during that time. If you consume too little calcium, you could wind up facing problems with your teeth that could result in increased tooth decay or even tooth loss.
