The Dental Diet
Tuesday, July 17, 2012 2:40 pm Email this article
The obese people I examine tend to have more dental caries and gum disease than the lean people I see. No surprise--fat people eat more sugar and more often. So how about the Dental Diet! Get compulsive about brushing and flossing after every time you eat. You would be less likely to snack then. And even if the "diet" didn't lead to weight loss, it would sure lead to healthier teeth.
But I bet it would lead to weight loss. Anything that raises eating to the level of consciousness is for the good.
