TORONTO, April 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Just in time for Oral Health Month, Crest and Oral-B are highlighting to Canadians how the food they eat can have a surprising impact on their oral health. While there has been a greater focus on maintaining balanced and healthy diets, few realize that some food and drinks can cause enamel erosion, which can lead to hypersensitivity and make teeth susceptible to decay.
In fact, 82% of adults already suffer from enamel erosion.
Renowned Toronto dentist and oral health expert, Dr. Janet Tamo is a member of Crest and Oral-B's inaugural Smile Council - an initiative used to unite professionals across Canada to educate on better oral health. Dr. Janet Tamo is available in the month of April as a source to speak to a number of oral health related topics including:
- What surprising food and drinks damage teeth: Food and drinks like orange juice, coffee, salad dressing, lemon juice, fresh fruits, pickles and ketchup - even vitamin C tablets - may be impacting overall oral health more than people might realize.
- Top tips for a healthy mouth: Insight into the strong relationship between diet and enamel erosion, and ways to continue enjoying your favourite foods without compromising your oral health.
- How to brush like your dentist: Advice on how to brush the right way for optimal oral hygiene (manual or electric?), including how long to keep brushing (longer than you think!) and other helpful information.
