Advantages of Licorice for Dental Health

Advantages of Licorice for Dental HealthThere are a number of foods and food products that can be consumed that will dramatically alter the health of one’s mouth. From staining the outside of the teeth to providing calcium for the roots and dentin, everyone should remain aware of how their own diet is affecting their oral health. This includes licorice, one substance that has been the subject of recent research that shows just how advantageous this popular ingredient may be to a patient’s teeth and gums.

In a recent study that was printed in the Journal of Natural Products, dried licorice was shown to help treat and prevent tooth decay and gum disease, two of the most prevalent oral health complications that our Los Angeles dentist diagnoses today. This ingredient has been used for many years in international markets, but very few Americans consume large amounts of licorice on a regular basis.

Along with these types of supplements and ingredients that may improve oral health, all patients should regularly seek out professional dental services at least once every six months to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Our friendly staff will be able to assist you and your loved ones with the periodontal treatments that are required to treat some of the most advanced stages of gum disease.

If you would like to begin the process of creating beautiful teeth and preserving your oral health, give our office a call today to schedule the your next comprehensive dental exam that could help you finally smile with confidence.
