BELLAIRE, TX, October 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- With the right guidance, patients can have healthy and happy teeth and gums. Maintaining oral hygiene is one of the most important things a patient can do. The second best thing is to schedule regular dental checkups. And the third, patients need to know what foods can hurt and help oral health. So, it's a good thing Dr. Karisha Madden wears two hats: dentist and food enthusiast. With Dr. Madden's knowledge of oral health, she spends her free time creating delicious and nutritious dishes.
"I listen to my patients, and many of them have many things they want to improve. One is their overall health, and I want to help them get on the right track. When patients visit my website, they can find important facts about food and oral health. My first responsibility and satisfaction is my dental practice, and my second enjoyment is cooking. I invite them to try all of my recipes!" said Dr. Madden, dentist Bellaire, TX.
Many patients believe as long as they brush their teeth twice a day it doesn't matter what they eat, but that's not true. If junk food is bad for a patient's body, it's also bad for his or her teeth. Sweet treats and acidic and greasy food contain sugar and acid that can do some serious damage to teeth. The best foods for teeth contain calcium, whole grains, antioxidants and vitamins, among other healthy ingredients.
"Foods that contain whole grains provide patients with a good source of vitamin B and iron, which assists in gum health. Vegetables and fruits with fiber help patients produce more saliva, which washes away food particles, acid and sugar. Plus, milk and cheese help neutralize acids that come from foods such as tomatoes, berries and highly processed carbohydrates," said Dr. Madden, West University area dentist.
People that snack on junk food increase the chances of cavities. It's better to create an eating schedule, so there are longer intervals for teeth to wash away acid and sugar. By snacking, patients continue to build up acid and sugar, so the enamel is constantly being damaged.
For optimal oral health, start choosing foods that benefit the body and teeth. Strong teeth are patients best defense against tooth decay and other dental issues.
