This is the last in our series on food and your teeth. Our subject today is Wasabi. That may seem like a odd food, but Wasabi, or Japanese horseradish, is a hot ingredient used in relation with Oriental cooking. This spicy condiment is known to safeguard healthy teeth by fighting bacteria that cause cavities and gum abscesses.
Wasabi root also helps reduce Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a bacteria that leads to stomach ulcers, unpleasant burping and bad breath, according to a 2004 study at Juntendo University School of Medicine in Tokyo.
So the next time you order sushi, don’t forget the Wasabi. It’s good for your stomach as well as your teeth.
Our patients are wonderful people! Here are some of the recent comments they made concerning their visit… Enjoy!
Dr. Brogdon has been my dentist for over 20 years and I feel lucky to have him and his staff taking care of my dental needs. He keeps up with the latest techniques and always answers any questions I may have in a clear manner. Thomas G.

I’ve been going to Brogdon Dental since moving to Chattanooga 24 years ago. I picked them out of the phone book because they were close to home and feel that I lucked out tremendously which is why I’ve never changed dental professionals ever since. I’ve had fillings as well as crowns over the years and have never, ever had a problem. The staff has always been wonderful, approachable and appreciative of our (my husband goes here too) business. I’ve never felt more confident that our dental needs will successfully be met with Dr. Brogdon and Angela (our hygienist) . He keeps up with all new techniques and advances in dentistry. If Brogdon Dental weren’t top notch, we wouldn’t have stuck with them for 24 years even though now we live some distance away. Evelyn G.
