Nutrición y tabaco asesoramiento
Una de nuestras maneras preferidas para ayudar a la salud de nuestros pacientes es tiempo de ayudarles a dejar el tabaco o encontrar maneras de mejorar su dieta para la salud de sus dientes y encías.
Asesoramiento de nutrición involves the patient filling out a three-day diet survey of all imbide foods and liquids and the time. The forms are available in our office or on the website. A brief consult can help us to identify reasons why cavities, zonas de abrasión, erosión, or wear are occurring. The exercise is intended to show the patient ways to improve oral hygiene and strengthen teeth by modifying their diet and their routines.
Por ejemplo, una reciente encuesta de la dieta mostró que un paciente que tenía múltiples áreas de erosión comía limones con azúcar como postre en la cena dos o tres veces a la semana (un postre de restaurante barato). The combination of aggressive brushing with a medium bristled toothbrush, el ácido de los limones, el azúcar, and certain aspects of her bite led to notches in numerous of her teeth at the gumline. They were sensitive and required resin fillings to eliminate the sensitivity, restaurar la estructura dental perdida, and prevent future loss of tooth structure. The process is very simple, fácil, and may be very informative. Ask our staff if you would like a diet survey or to schedule an appointment for nutrition counselling.
