March is National Nutrition Month
Help your family make good food choices and develop the right dental health habits. Maintaining good oral health will help you maintain fresh breath, prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Here are our suggestions:
- Drink plenty of water.
- Eat a variety of foods from each of the five major food groups, including:
- whole grains
- lean sources of protein such as lean beef, skinless poultry and fish; dry beans, peas and other legumes
- low-fat and fat-free dairy foods
The relationship between nutrition and oral health has been proven by research. Stay healthy by eating right. If you have questions about your dental health, contact Prime Dental Associates at (815) 385-4140 or email our office.
