Diet and Dentistry – How Sorriso Design can help you to have healthier teeth

Teeth are often considered the marker of health, attractiveness, success, and even happiness. Commonly, the approach to dental care has been fearful, costly, and segregated from other parts of the body. It’s known that oral health echoes our overall wellbeing.

At Sorriso Design, the entire team works with patients to help them have healthier, whiter and more attractive teeth. That includes offering expert advice on how your diet will help your dental health and your general health.

Sorriso Design is a brand-new state of art Dental Clinic that offers specialised and individualised dental health plans. Our personalised treatment plans merge dental and nutritional science to support you in eating healthier and maintaining your oral health and longevity.

Advice from a leading dentist in Milton Keynes

Our mouths are diversified places. The foods we eat, how often we eat them, and other habits like smoking, drinking alcohol, and even hobbies can affect our dentition. A healthy balanced diet helps keep our teeth strong.

A lot of this isn’t new. We all know we should cut back on food and drinks high in sugar, but we’re usually thinking about the negative effects on weight and heart health, not dental health. However, as Dr Juliane Scandian points out, too much sugar leads to tooth decay and other diseases. Limiting our exposure to high sugar drinks and foods can majorly contribute to better dental health. Increasing the amount of water we drink daily rather than opting for something more sugar-laden is also a great way to improve our overall health and wellbeing.

Our baseline for good dental health is your diet. A poor diet leads to some vitamins deficiency or insufficiency, and most of the side effects are visible or experienced in our mouths.

It also highlights the importance of vitamin D when it comes to gum health and how its deficiency could be a potential risk factor for gum disease.

Vitamin C plays a huge role in the integrity of the blood vessels, and it leads to ‘bleeding gums and loss of teeth. If you have bleeding gums, that’s caused by an imbalance between oral microbes and your immune system.

Magnesium insufficiency can manifest as a tongue tremor, tic or twitching (DiNicolantinio et al., 2018), which can cause it to quiver when at rest.

B vitamins are sometimes known as ‘the stress vitamin’. Like magnesium, we use up more of these vitamins when stressed. Hence, bilateral sores in the corners of the mouth and cracks in the tongue are related to Vitamin B deficiency.

Of course, our diet needs to change as we change. One of the Sorriso Design team’s key activities with all new patients is a health check that allows us to understand each individual’s needs. Your dentist should be aware of changes to your lifestyle so they can offer you expert support.

Since our mouth is the gateway to our body, keeping our oral microbiome balanced is essential for creating and maintaining a healthy person. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think.
