It’s probably no surprise that the team members at our dental office in Belle Fourche aren’t big fans of sugar. Too much of the sweet stuff can seriously compromise your oral health, and we’d rather see your pearly whites happy and healthy. That’s one reason why we encourage all of our patients to reduce the amount of sugar in their diets. But that’s not the only reason we’re supplying tips on how to consume less of it.
Everyone knows that sugar is bad for teeth because it increases the risk for decay and cavities. But did you know that too much sugar can cause serious problems in the rest of the body too? An over-consumption of sugar can:
Having a certain amount of sugar in your diet is necessary for proper body function. But how much is too much? The recommended amount of sugar someone should have on a daily basis depends on age and gender. The American Heart Association suggests a maximum daily sugar intake of 37.5 grams for men and 25 grams for women.
Following these tips can really help limit the amount of sugar you consume and do wonders to keep your smile, and your body healthy. Remember, it’s still crucial to brush your teeth everyday, twice a day, floss once a day, and maintain regular visits with your Belle Fourche dentist.
If you do notice any signs of potential decay, or if it’s time for your dental cleaning, give our Belle Fourche dental office a call to schedule an appointment. We’re always happy to see new smiling faces!
