Newsletter - March Issue

Dentist Arlington, TX Newsletter December

March is National Nutrition Month, and Dr. Nancy Bui is determined to educate people on how they can make healthier choices to benefit both their mouth and their body as a whole. A few critical factors are the amount of sugar, the acidity level of your nutritional choices, and how much time your teeth spend in contact with these harmful chemicals: the longer the exposure, the worse the damage will be.

Identifying what your bad habits are is the first step towards improving your dental nutrition. One of the worst culprits is soda, which is now the primary source of sugar in the American diet and studies show that people who drink more than two sodas each day have 62% more dental decay, fillings, and tooth loss.

There are, however, more conspicuous offenders, including cough drops, fruit juice, sport drinks, honey, liqueurs, and even bread. It can all get confusing, but if there is any substance that you have in your mouth for a long time throughout the day, it is probably damaging your teeth.

Innovative new products like CarifreeĀ® can help undo the damage caused to your teeth and prevent further harm by actually neutralizing the acids in your mouth. You can also ask Dr. Nancy Bui to help you determine what your bad habits are and how you can change them for the better.

May the "Luck of the Irish" be yours on St. Patrick's Day and all month long!

Dr. Nancy Bui
