There is the popular saying, “You are what you eat”. While it typically refers to the food you consume and how it affects your body, many people forget the effect your food choices and habits can have on your oral health. Your mouth is the gateway to your body, and everything you consume has to pass through your mouth. Each time you eat, there are food particles and bacteria that linger in your mouth, eventually turning to plaque. Your food choices and habits can greatly impact the level of bacteria in your mouth, leading to an increased risk of decay and other issues.
