3 Ways To Keep Your Mouth Happy!

Elgin Teeth Bleaching

At David Rice DDS in Elgin IL our objective is to help every patient who comes in for an appointment to have the best possible oral health. This post focuses on something that doesn’t get as much attention as cavities or cosmetic dentistry: our sense of taste.

A happy mouth is not only a healthy mouth but also a mouth that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods. Healthy oral habits benefit our taste buds as well as our smiles. Here are some recommendations 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. Adequate saliva is also necessary for avoiding decay and gum disease.
  • Steer Clear of Salt- and Fat-heavy Food: They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.
  • Don’t Smoke: Cigarettes are responsible for many serious health problems, but another effect is that smoke dulls your sense of taste. Olfactory nerves can even be permanently damaged.

At David Rice DDS in Elgin IL we offer comprehensive dental services, from general to restorative dentistry. Find out why people from Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne trust us with their dental health! Contact us today!
