Excessive Junk Food Causes Damage to the Teeth

When you munch on something or drink copious quantities of aerated liquids, bacteria takes root on the enamel of the teeth resulting in cavities, tooth decay, chipped teeth, stained teeth and so on. Unfortunately, it does not end there, you can fall prey to damaging the gum, bones and the overall structure of the teeth.

The Chapel Hill Dental Clinic is among the best-known places to visit for your oral health. The dentist attends to the problem from the very root and with the right dental insurance, you can pretty much get yourself a new set of teeth. Down the line however, if you are not careful about your eating habits, the implants, root canals, bridge work, dentures, cavities and so on are going to give way.

Enamel and Gums Suffer

The cocktail of food that provides no nutrition always looks and smells appealing. Kids usually fall prey to this causing them to visit the dentist more often than they go to school! A diet rich in calories and junk food can cause a child to lose her or his pearly whites in favor of affordable dentures. It is therefore essential to educate parents and/or caregivers about the pitfalls of junk food.

There are good foods that fight tooth decay and deterioration with suitable nutritional value like calcium rich food (milk, cheese), folic acid, green leafy veggies and so on. The objective to get your teeth in good shape is to make sure that you floss after a meal. If you cannot, gargle the mouth so that any food lodged in the mouth is removed completely.

To Our Most Valued Patients:

We will be closed and available for emergency only care until further notice. We must implement new restrictions on patient care. This is based on the latest advice we have received from the Centers for Disease Control, the NM Dental Board and the American Dental Association.

If you have an appointment for non-emergency dental treatment (such as a checkup or cleaning or fillings), the appointment has been canceled, and we will work with you to reschedule. We are now restricting treatment to urgent or emergency care only. If you are having a true dental emergency call us at 575-523-8663 or 575-520-5036

This decision was not easy, but necessary. The health and well-being of our patients and team members are our primary focus.

We regret that we must restrict our patient care this way. We are serving our patients in the safest manner possible by following the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under these difficult circumstances. In doing this, we will safeguard the health and safety of our patients, our team members, and the entire community. Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during these trying times and we wish you all the best of health.

In Good Health,
Dr. Robert Mabry and Team
