Un-anticipated benefit. I went to the dentist today for my regular cleaning. The hygienist and the Dr. are usually impressed with my dental hygiene. This time seemed different. They were way more impressed than usual and my gum tissue measurements are “text book”. I told the doc I haven’t had any sugar for several weeks and asked if that may have caused the improvement. The dentist said he hoped not because if it is he doesn’t want to give up sugar.
