Grove City Dental is always striving to have our patients attain 100% Healthy Mouths. But, we know that “an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure” and too few
people are aware of the everyday activities that are leading to less than healthy mouths.
Most people don’t realize that drinks like Gatorade and other drinks like soft drinks can be very detrimental to your teeth. It is not only the sugar content that is an issue, but also the PH levels of the drinks. So many times the issue is not what you think is the challenge.
But it does stand to reason that what you put into your mouth will effect the overall health of your mouth.
And that is why I’m providing for my patients the free e-book below. This is made available to me via my membership of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). As you read below please be sure to get your free copy by clicking on the links below. Grove City Dental is here to answer your questions so please don’t hesitate to call 614-808-1700.

Recent studies (referenced hereand here) have shown that what you eat can have both a positive and negative impact on your oral health. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) wants to help uncover the smile secrets in your kitchen with a Recipes for a Healthier Smile e-booklet featuring delicious new recipes using key ingredients to help keep your smile at its best.

Dr. Shawn Frawley, AACD member and Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, is a gourmet cook who worked together with nutritionist and health coach Karen Krchma to create these healthy, easy-to-make recipes that everyone in the family will enjoy.
“The teeth and gums mirror what’s going on in the rest of your body. Therefore, what you consume influences the health of your smile,” said Dr. Frawley. “That’s why it’s important to think carefully about making the right food choices.”
Some super-smile foods might surprise you. Shitake mushrooms are one example. A study by the Paediatric Caries Research Foundation found that these mushrooms contain a sugar called Lentinan which prevents mouth bacteria from growing. Raw onions and wasabi, a Japanese version of horseradish, also contain substances which stop bacteria growth. Based on a 2010 lab-based study in The European Journal of Dentistry, the iron in Broccoli may help form an acid-resistant film on teeth. After exposure to an acid-based drink like cola, enamel erodes half as quickly when exposed to broccoli.
“To have a great smile, a diet rich in nutrient-dense foods will be your best ally,” said nutritionist Karen Krchma. “This booklet provides a variety of wholesome and tasty recipes with healthful ingredients that will build and strengthen your teeth and gums.” ” – See more at: http://grovecitydental.com/blog/free-e-booklet-recipes-healthier-smile/#sthash.psofHM7Q.dpuf
