At The Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth, we enjoy helping patients have the best health possible. This blog 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 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. A normal saliva level is also necessary for preventing cavities and gum disease.
- 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 men and women don’t realize that their sense of taste is dulled while they smoke. Olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently.
In addition to healthy teeth and keen taste buds, The Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth wants each of our patients to have a beautiful smile and excellent dental health. If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry, please contact us. Services also include general dentistry.
