Oral Health for Vegetarians

Oral Health for VegetariansVegetarian diets are becoming more popular in the face of concerns about high cholesterol and triglycerides. However, a diet which is completely deficient in animal products may cause health issues, especially tooth loss and gum disease.

Our Los Angeles dentist wants you to be aware of the dangers associated with vegetarian diets and what you can do to preserve your dental health.
Vegetarian diets are very healthy, but may be deficient in certain vital nutrients, such as Vitamin D and calcium, which can affect oral health. Vitamin D deficiencies in particular may cause tooth decay and lead to gum disease. Many vitamin and mineral deficiencies can be counteracted with over-the-counter supplements.

If you have suffered tooth decay, gum disease, or tooth loss due to diet deficiencies, our cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles can help you decide on the best course of treatment to preserve your smile and give you healthy teeth and gums.

Many people who have suffered tooth damage or loss must seek restorative dentistry treatments to repair the problems. Root canals or crowns may be necessary for severely damaged teeth. In some cases, dental implants may be necessary to replace missing teeth.

Whether you need dental fillings, general dental care, or specialized cosmetic dentistry, our dentists can give you the care you need to restore your good dental health. We can also give you good advice on working dental care into your vegetarian lifestyle. With proper nutritional supplements, good routine oral hygiene, and regular dental checkups, you can have perfectly healthy teeth and a beautiful smile for a lifetime!
