You’ve surely heard all of the common nutritional advice from every dentist you’ve ever been to – avoid candies and other sweets, try to cut out sodas, and drink water after meals. This way, you could avoid common tooth decay problems, such as cavities. However, here in our Philadelphia area offices, we’ve long believed in the positive, enduring effects holistic remedies can have on the body, and nutritional therapy happens to be one of them. Did you know that eating healthy foods can improve your oral health and help to stave off problems such as periodontal disease? Once he’s completed your treatment, Dr. DiGiallorenzo will be happy to provide you with nutritional therapy that will provide a strong base for your oral health to thrive, as well as support for the dental work you’ve received in our Collegeville or Williamsport.
Here’s our tips for modifying your diet:
- Try trading out for whole grains
- Eat a variety of vegetables, not just one kind
- Fruit is always good
- Indulge in calcium-rich foods
- Go lean with protein
- Find a good balance between food and exercise that fits your needs
Just like with homeopathic medicine, we believe that the body is more than capable of healing itself if we provide it with the right tools. Food can be one of those tools! Show off all that dental work for years to come with the help of nutritional therapy. Please call either our Collegeville or Williamsport office if you have questions about our holistic remedies, or if you’d like to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. DiGiallorenzo. Patients from the Philadelphia area and beyond are always welcome to take part in our effective, wholesome care that puts your health and comfort first.
