At Rotem Dental Care in Toms River, we want all of our patients to have the best possible dental health. In this article we’re focusing on an issue that doesn’t get as much attention as cavities or cosmetic dentistry: our sense of taste.
A healthy mouth is not only a happy mouth, but also one that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods. And it turns out, healthy oral habits benefit our taste buds. Here are a few suggestions to help you better enjoy all the flavors and textures that can make each meal a delight.
- Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly by your dentist. Optimal levels of saliva are also important to avoid cavities and keep gums healthy.
- Avoid processed foods with fake flavors and too much sugar and salt. They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.
- Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are responsible for many serious health problems, but many people don’t realize that their sense of taste is dulled while they smoke. Olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently.
Along with strong teeth and taste buds, we want all our patients at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River to have the beautiful smile they have always desired. Our services include general and cosemtic dentistry. Call for an appointment today, and here’s to your good dental health!
