As many of you may already know, one of the biggest factors that lead to dental cavities is your diet. And while the diet may be understood to play a part in oral health, many do not realize that certain foods can cause the saliva to become acidic leading to cavities. Just as many parents may not know that milk or formula resting in a child’s mouth can lead to early childhood cavities. In our Delta office we will discuss proper dietary guidelines, which will help us address specific elements of possible unhealthy consumption. By reducing, or in some cases eliminating, certain foods or drinks – the risk of cavities can be drastically reduced.
