Certain foods can be detrimental – more sugar means higher risk for cavities, dark foods and drinks may lead to staining, and acidic foods weaken the enamel. Certain health conditions lead to reduced saliva production and chronic dry mouth. However, many patients aren’t aware of how their oral health and hygiene effects their body. At Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS, we believe it’s essential for patients to be educated about all of the ways oral health and whole body health intersect. Contact our friendly Edison dental team to schedule a checkup today. Our knowledgeable dentists and team members will be happy to walk you through the most effective oral hygiene practices to ensure your optimal oral and overall health.
