3 Ways To Keep Your Mouth Happy, Brandon FL!

Valrico Teeth Bleaching

Hi. I’m Dr. Jeff Bynum, an experienced dentist here in Valrico. It is my goal to help my patients have optimum oral health, and today I would like to talk about something associated with our mouths that doesn’t get as much attention as cavities or cosmetic dentistry: it’s our sense of taste.

A happy mouth is not only a healthy mouth, but it’s also a mouth that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods. And it turns out that many of the habits that will keep your taste buds sensitive are those that will also be good for your teeth and gums. So here are a few tips to help you better enjoy the flavor of your food.

1) Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly by your Brandon, Riverview, or Plant City dentist. Plus, optimal levels of saliva are important to avoid cavities and keep gums healthy.

2) Avoid processed foods with fake flavors and too much sugar and salt. They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.

3) Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are responsible for so many horrible health issues, but many people don’t realize that their sense of taste is dulled while they smoke, and the olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently.

Thank you so much for visiting the Valrico dentist blog. Along with dental health and a keen sense of taste, I want my patients to have the beautiful smile they’ve always desired.
