Why is good nutrition so important for oral health?

You have probably heard many times that teeth are the mirror of the body and that they reflect our general health. But do you know why? Well, the answer is very simple: because what we eat directly affects our oral health.


Nutrition has a direct influence on our teeth and gums. In fact, according to studies, more than 90% of oral diseases have a nutritional basis.


You may not realize it, but the foods you eat have a direct impact on your oral health. In fact, poor nutrition is one of the main risk factors for developing cavities and gum disease.



This is because the mouth is full of bacteria that feed on sugary and starchy foods, producing acid that can damage teeth.


Not only can poor nutrition lead to tooth decay and gum disease, but it can also cause other problems, such as dry mouth, which can make it difficult to speak and eat.


In addition, malnourished people are more likely to develop infections in the mouth, which can lead to further complications.
