Dr. Sonny Aryan Shares Insights on the Impact of Poor Diet on Dental Health
San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2015 -- Dr. Sonny Aryan, an emergency dentist in San Diego, is urging patients to eat healthy meals to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. According to Dr. Aryan, declining oral health is often one of the first signs of poor nutrition.
"The American Dental Association is currently appealing to Congress to maintain programs that are designed to improve the dietary habits of children because of the critical role that our diet plays in maintaining good oral health," said Dr. Aryan. "It's not enough to simply avoid candy and foods high in sugar. It's equally, if not more important that you eat a healthy balance of fruits and vegetables, grains, dairy and protein to combat tooth decay and gum disease."
According to Dr. Aryan, most families are unaware of the negative impacts simple carbohydrates and acidic foods can have on oral health. These foods can accelerate the progression of tooth decay. Additionally, conditions such as acid reflux, which can also be aggravated by poor diet, can also negatively impact teeth and gums.
Tooth decay and gum disease when left untreated can cause severe toothache, tooth abscess and other issues. As a result, patients are often forced to seek emergency dental services in San Diego.
"It's important to us that our patients adopt healthy habits," said Dr. Aryan. "When patients are regimented about their overall health and wellbeing, they can improve not only their oral health, but ensure that their entire bodies area healthy and that they live long lives."
Dr. Aryan's dental practice is based in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego and offers 24-7 appointments for severe toothaches, tooth abscess, loose braces, broken brace wires, injury to soft tissue, objects trapped between teeth and other dental emergencies.
