Good Nutrition Can Mean Healthy Gums

COLLEGEVILLE, WILLIAMSPORT AND PHILADELPHIA, PA – March is National Nutrition Month, and Williamsport, PA dental implants specialist Dr. David DiGiallorenzo has used the nutrition education and information campaign to reinforce to our patients the vital role nutrition plays in gum health.

Dr. DiGiallorenzo, a Williamsport, PA periodontics expert, incorporates massage, nutrition, and reflexology into our dental practice because he believes a total wellness approach results in the best treatment for you, the patient.

“As we know, your oral health is a window into your overall health,” says the Williamsport, PA periodontist.

Dr. DiGiallorenzo encourages our patients to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, as well as in a variety of colors. Different fruits and vegetables contain different nutrients, and eating colorful vegetables helps ensure that you get the proper nutrients.

The Williamsport, PA periodontists in Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s office also offer two lines of nutritional products- Isagenix and NuVerus- designed to fight gum infections and aid in building strong immune systems. Strong immune systems are particularly important in patients with periodontal infection because the infection can hinder the ability of oral tissue to use nutrients properly.

The products are in liquid form, as compliance and adsorption is more effective, Dr. DiGiallorenzo says. As well, Reservetrol by NuVerus is a potent antioxidant and should be taken daily to combat the oxidative stresses placed on the body. It can be ordered at

Good nutrition can improve periodontal health, Dr. DiGiallorenzo says. Keeping our patients’ gums healthy can help combat the bacteria that leads to gingivitis, and that has the potential to stave off a wide variety of other, often more serious systemic ailments.

“National Nutrition Month is a great time for our patients to be reminded of the benefits of a nutrient-rich diet,” Dr. DiGiallorenzo says.
