Is Your Low-Carb Diet Giving You Dragon Breath?

bad breath treatment Jacksonville

Many people mistakenly believe that all bad breath is linked to dissatisfactory brushing. The truth is that there are myriad causes of halitosis. Your dentist can help you pinpoint the cause of your problem and discuss how to cure bad breath.

Your diet significantly impacts your breath. Because foods begin to be digested the second they enter your mouth, and because they are absorbed and distributed throughout the body, you probably will be able to smell strong foods like onions and garlic long after you’ve eaten them.

Therefore, using a mouthwash will only mask the smell. Constantly sucking on breath mints is also not smart. This may bring additional oral issues—especially if the mints have sugar. If you want real relief, you may need to avoid the strong foods altogether.

Furthermore, many dieters find that their diet regimen is making it harder to keep their mouth fresh and clean. Low-carb and no-carb diets promote fat burning, but the side effect of bad breath can be caused by the chemicals released during this process. Increasing water intake can help alleviate this.

Lastly, flossing regularly is often the key to truly fresh breath. Many people don’t realize how much food can be stuck between their teeth, and this food can cause halitosis if it isn’t removed. More importantly, the food particles turn into plaque which can cause dental caries and gum disease.

3 Dental Dangers For Toddlers

Pumpkin Center family dentist

Hello new parents! At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville we know that keeping babies and toddlers safe and healthy requires constant effort. You secure them snuggly in their car seats, baby-proof your medicine cabinet and guard the stairway with a gate. You take them to your pediatrician for immunizations, check-ups and an occasional prescription for an antibiotic.

Freedom Village Dental wants to remind you about another important component of child wellness: oral health. Sadly, we see too many cases of completely preventable child cavities. You have probably received the following critical advice, but it bears repeating:

  1. Don’t put babies to bed with a bottle!
  2. Don’t allow kids to drink juice continually during the day!
  3. Prevent frequent snacking on sugary foods!

Oral health is intrinsically connected to overall physical health and normal development. If your oral hygiene is not up to par, now is the time to shape up and help your young child develop prime oral health behaviors that will serve them well throughout their life.

Freedom Village Dental recommends beginning twice-yearly dental visits, starting around age one or when the first tooth breaks through. Our friendly staff helps young patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their exams.

We can advise you on thumb sucking, dental sealants, normal child tooth development, braces, athletic tooth protection, fluoride, or any other pediatric dental issue.

In addition to children’s dentistry, Freedom Village Dental offers the full spectrum of dental services such as family dentistry and emergency dentistry

If your toddler has not yet visited the dentist, schedule an appointment ASAP by calling us at 910-716-0101.

Freedom Village Dental Miracles

Affordable Jacksonville Family DentistryFreedom Village Dental cosmetic dentistry can not only upgrade your smile, we can improve the health of your teeth and make your face more attractive and younger-looking. Furthermore, our dentists can help with TMJ issues, and it definitely boosts your self-esteem!

What’s more, cosmetic dentistry is surprisingly quick and virtually pain-free.

At Freedom Village Dental, we perform dental miracles every day. Regardless of the number of teeth affected, we re-design smiles and correct problems by skillfully performing cosmetic dental care.

Orthodontics are often the answer for misaligned teeth. Even if you have suffered with crooked teeth for years, a short time enduring braces will be well worth it.

If you have teeth that are decayed or otherwise damaged, there are multiple remedies. Porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays, dental bonding, and veneers are some of the effective procedures available. What if a tooth is missing entirely? A dental implant is a complete restoration; including a new root!

Perhaps all of this sounds too good to be true. If you are a skeptic, schedule a no-pressure cosmetic dental smile makeover consultation today and find out for yourself. Our dentists provide general and cosmetic dentistry. The Freedom Village Dental team will explain how your teeth can be transformed and you can see before and after photos.
