Let me kindly ask you for your professional opinion on dental health/upkeep and the traditional multiple meal bodybuilding diet.
I eat 6 times a day and try to brush after every meal (thatÃ¢??s what we are all told growing up), but realistically I probably brush 4-5 times a day and floss at night. Despite my efforts, my last dental visit I had a new cavity. My dentist guessed that I ate multiply small meals etc based on my athletic background/physique or whatever and suggested that although this may be good for overall health, it is causing havoc bacteria wise and she said it was too much abrasion throughout the day. She suggested brushing 3 times and flossing + rinsing after the other meals. What do you think?
Also, during a cleaning, they asked if I drink a lot of coffee or tea (none on both) but explained I drink workout shakes that involve a flavoring & food coloring (Surge Workout Fuel + the flavoring) and eventually showed them the bottle of flavoring on a follow up visit and they point to it as big reason for stains on my teeth. Considering this stuff is nearly impossible to get off your fingers, they may have a good point. What do you think and other than switching supplements, what can be done to reduce the impact of eating and drinking in this manner?
Thanks in advance!
