SAN JOSE, CA - Summer time opens up doors so that people become more active while the weather is so warm. To help patients maintain their healthy, sparkling smile this summer, Dr. Wesley Yemoto, San Jose cosmetic dentist, offers helpful dental tips in addition to the availability of educational videos, articles and an informative blog.
This summer, Dr. Yemoto, dentist in San Jose, CA, urges his patients to protect their mouths not only when participating in sports and other recreational activities, but while enjoying picnics and other get-togethers. Family parties, weddings, and picnics allow for people to get out and enjoy the weather, but Dr. Yemoto informs his patients that many of the drinks included could pose a risk for the health of their teeth and gums.
Dr. Yemoto, dentist in San Jose, informs patients that the sugary drinks they drink, such as energy drinks, sports drinks, sodas, coffee, Frappuccinos and various fruit drinks, can do more harm to a person's teeth than they realize. Soda not only contains empty calories, but it also contains sugars that can harm enamel, which is the protective shell around teeth. Over time, exposing dental enamel to carbonated and sugary beverages, and non-carbonated canned ice tea or fruit juice, weakens and permanently destroys enamel, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.
"I understand that many of us enjoy a coffee in the morning, a Frappuccino, or even the energy boost offered by an energy or sports drink, but these drinks can cause more harm than they do good. This summer instead of grabbing for a sugary, carbonated drink I want my patients to reach for more refreshing and healthy alternatives, such as water," said Dr. Wesley Yemoto, San Jose dentist.
Plaque thrives on the starches and sugars found in a great deal of foods, which, when combined together, create an acid that attacks the enamel on a person's teeth. When this happens, a person will develop tooth decay. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), acid that is created attacks a person's teeth for 20 minutes or more. Dr. Wesley Yemoto, San Jose, CA dentist, wants to further prevent his patients from the harmful effects of tooth decay, and even gum disease.
By offering helpful dental tips while in the office, in addition to the array of educational resources available via his practice's website, Dr. Yemoto hopes to help his patients maintain a healthy, glowing smile this summer, and all year long.
