Sometimes patients tell us they can’t resist stopping at Tim Horton’s on Regent Avenue to satisfy their sweet tooth. If you have a sweet tooth too, that’s fine.

Here are 5 ways that diet affects your oral health (and vice versa):
Your mouth is the start of your digestive system. Everything that you eat affects your oral health and overall health so it’s important to take care of your teeth and mouth. With proper oral hygiene and a balanced diet, you can combat the negative effects of carbohydrates and acids. Remember to brush and floss regularly and drink plenty of water between meals to rinse away food particles.
