Periodontal disease, tooth loss, tooth decay, infections, mouth sores, and increased risk of death are some of the illnesses associated with bad diets and poor oral health.  Gum disease is an inflammatory disease that is treatable and the main cause of tooth loss (CDC).    Poor Nutrition Can Lead to Bad Oral Health Poor nutrition can lead to cancer , high blood pressure, affect mental health in children, cause  type 2 diabetes , autoimmune disorders, and  your oral health  (Colgate).  Too much sugar in your diet will lead to tooth decay which is the  most common childhood disease  (Mount Healthy).
