This week I had great news from a wonderful patient. For years she has struggled with seemingly endless cavities and dental treatment to keep her teeth. Over the years we discussed how her chronic acid reflux was contributing to her cavities, by bathing her teeth in stomach acid. She reported that this year she has given up soda and fried, oily and junk food. She is trying to make the bulk of her diet fresh fruits and vegetables. As a result, now she no longer has need for acid reflux medication AND she has lost 20 pounds!!
