Much of your dental and oral health is dependant on your diet. Adequate nutrition is necessary for a healthy immune system to fight of oral infections. At Shannon Dental Health Center in Kennewick we know that if you are missing a few key nutrients, you are putting yourself at risk for tooth decay and gum disease, also called periodontal disease.

Learn about how to eat a balanced diet with adequate nutrients for general and dental health. Always be wary of sugar consumption, especially the sticky candies, as they may make you prone to tooth decay. Kennewick parents should know that babies can develop tooth decay from sleeping with bottles filled with milk, formula or juice.

Make sure your family is eating a balanced diet and brushing and flossing regularly. These healthy habits will reduce, or possibly even eliminate, oral infections.

For more information on how you can prevent oral and dental infections, call our Kennewick office at (855) 556-3528.
