Dental health is intimately related to nutrition and diet and a thorough understanding of these relationships, and the preservation of health is an integral part of dental practice. The focus of modern dentistry is shifting from the filling and extracting of teeth towards prevention of dental decay and disease. The changing undergraduate dental curriculum reflects these changes and patients are increasingly asking for information on the best way to look after their teeth. Nutrition, Diet,and Oral Health is written for undergraduate students, covering the information they need in this field during their courses, as well as postgraduate dental students particularly in paedodontics and the GDP. Developed to help the reader build an understanding of the relationship between diet and the prevention of oral disease, this book is well illustrated in full colour and includes case-histories, information boxes and recommendations for further reading.

Most oral diseases are preventable, yet they remain the most globally common noncommunicable disorders, affecting people throughout their lifetime. Lifestyle, including diet and food choice, is central to the occurrence of oral disease. Nutrition and diet can impact the development and status of the oral cavity as well as the progression of illness. Also, poor oral health can influence the ability to eat and, consequently, to maintain an adequate diet and nutrient balance. This book, consisting of 14 chapters, provides current information on the impact of nutrients (macro- and micro-elements and vitamins) and diet on oral health and vice versa (i.e., the impact of oral health on diet/nutrition). It also reviews possible oral health effects of probiotics as well as relationships between genotype and diet, which are important for determining oral disease risk. This book is a helpful resource for under- and postgraduate students. It will also be useful to dentists and nutritionists/dietitians as they integrate nutrition education into medical practice.
