An Apple A Day May Keep the Doctor and The Dentist Away!

Apples have long been associated with a healthy smile. It takes strong, healthy teeth to bite into a crunchy apple. That’s why you’ll be offered an apple when you visit your Stonehaven Dental office.

You’ve heard the expression “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. It may also be true that an apple a day keeps the dentist away.  Children have a natural sweet tooth that draws them to sugary snacks and chewy candy that can stick to the teeth.  Tooth decay results when cavity-causing organisms feed on this sugar and turn it into enamel-eroding acid. Apples are naturally sweet and offer a healthy alternative to processed, sugary snacks packed with nutrient-deficient calories.

Apples have other advantages over sugary snacks and even over many other fruits.

A healthy diet means healthier teeth.  At your next visit to a Stonehaven Dental office, you’ll leave with an apple and a healthier smile!
