In honor of June Dairy Month, our team would like to thank all of our hard working families in the Dairy Industry. We all rely heavily on the hard work that our country’s farmers do!
In fact, dairy is important to your overall health! A 2008 study from the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) found that regular consumption of dairy products, such as milk, cheese and yogurt, can lower your chances of contracting periodontal disease (also known as gum disease).
Results of the study show that adults who consume at least 55 grams of lactic acid a day are less at risk for gum disease. Eating dairy is not just healthy for building strong bones, but is essential for maintaining a strong, healthy mouth.
If you have questions about foods that can improve or hinder your dental health, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or ask us on Facebook!
