Importance of a Healthy Smile

You’ve probably heard the saying, you are what you eat; well that’s particularly true for your teeth and gums.

Those starchy or sugary foods we love are also loved by the bacteria in your mouth that can cause tooth decay and gum disease.

The difference between a healthy smile and frequent visits to the dentist has a lot to do with your diet. Even with a good oral hygiene routine (brushing twice a day, flossing once a day), it can still be hard to keep your teeth healthy over the long term
