The Relationship Between Sugar and Oral Health by Dr. Daniel Stewart
My wife, Judy, and I just got back from a two day seminar about diet and health with the executives of Ideal Protein and boy, did we learn a lot! Being a dentist, I take it for granted the insidiousness of carbohydrates and added sugar in our diets.
Did you know that if you are a diabetic you have a fifty percent greater chance of getting dentures? Did you know that children born after 2010 are more likely to have a lesser life span than their parents due to the effects of too many carbohydrates? Many of my patients are on the classic meds for high blood pressure, diabetes and blood thinners and guess what – these diseases all stem back to food!
Children are now getting diabetes before their teens. It is an epidemic and yes, I see this in my dental population. Decay is on a massive increase. Most 5 year olds now have at least one cavity. When I first opened the dental practice, I rarely saw this. The benefits of fluoride can no longer compete.
If this worries you and you would like more information about what to do about this, attend an Ideal Protein seminar here at Smile Savers Dentistry. Judy and I put these on at 6:15 every Wednesday night right here in our Columbia, MD dental office. The information you will learn will change your life and give you more control of you oral and physical health. Call the office today at 410-730-6460 and reserve a seat at one of our upcoming free Ideal Protein workshops.
