Who has not considered getting into ‘Operation Bikini’ with the arrival of summer?
That is when, in a desperate attempt to lose those extra pounds, some people resort to the crazy miracle or express diets that drastically modify their eating habits without any medical control; These are weight loss programs that promise fast and effortless weight loss and that often lead to an imbalance of nutrients and an exaggerated energy cut resulting in various risks to the physical and even psychological health of our body and give rise to a great rebound effect and a rapid recovery of lost weight and even more almost immediately.
In addition, we are not aware of the damage that these diets have on our oral health, especially hyper-protein diets, which are a direct cause of oral infections, tooth decay and gum disease. Your dental clinic in Valencia gives you clues about it.
1 – The deficiencies that this type of diets cause have extremely harmful consequences that directly affect our oral health:
Vitamin A, B and C deficit:
- Vitamin A: It brings less salivation, less antibacterial protection, increased risk of infections.
- Vitamin B2: It affects the mucous membranes, causing lesions such as stomatitis (canker sores) and cheilitis (nozzles)
- Vitamin B12: It can lead to atrophy of the tongue papillae, alteration of the sense of taste accordingly and gingivitis.
- Vitamin C: Increases the risk of infections and tooth decay and reduces the ability to repair oral lesions.
2 – Sudden lowering of defenses that greatly damages the immune system.
3 – It affects bone and ligament health and favors gum disease, gingivitis and periodontitis, with the consequent inflammation of tissues, and can lead to the fall of dental pieces.
4 – Promotes the oxidation of tissues that, together with the difficulty for the assimilation of calcium, favors osteoporosis, negatively influences the support of the teeth.
Summarizing: The best thing to do when losing those extra kilos is to put yourself in the hands of a specialist who tells you guidelines to follow to maintain a balanced and healthy diet, including all the necessary nutrients (water, minerals, lipids, carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins) in an appropriate proportion.
