Every year we plant our office vegetable garden for our staff and our patients to enjoy. It’s calming to go outside and enjoy the garden before or after your appointment and fun for kids and adults alike to see the veggies grow! Plus, we get a bounty of vegetables we can share with our patients after we harvest them.
Did you know that healthy teeth and gums start with your diet and what you eat and drink? Fruits and vegetables are high in water and fiber, which balances the sugar they contain and help clean your teeth. Chewing also helps stimulate saliva which washes acid and food particles from your teeth. Snacking on fruits and vegetables during the day versus candy or sugary drinks will make your teeth happy and healthy!
