WHY DO I NEED A TEXT ON NUTRITION AND ORAL HEALTH?

The mission of the modern oral health professional is to e promote oral health by diagnosing and treating oral disease, restoring oral function, and providing the guidance and therapies needed to prevent future oral problems. Nutrition can play an important role in all of these aspects of oral care. Oral health is a major contributor to good nutrition. The oral cavity is the pathway to the body, and disturbances in the mouth can profoundly affect diet and ultimate nutritional status. Conversely, good nutrition provides the foundation for good oral, health. Diet plays a major role in the etiology or prevention of dental caries, and is an important supporting factor in other oral infections.

Dentistry today is changing to meet the needs of a changing population. Life expectancy continues to increase, and the nature and demographics of oral diseases are changing. Associated oral conditions such as coronal caries, root caries, periodontal disease, edentuiism, cancer, AIDS, and oral infections, all have nutritional implications.

The American Dental Association and the American Dental Hygienists' Association recommend that dental professionals "maintain current knowledge of nutrition recommendations as they relate to general and oral health and disease," and "effectively educate and counsel their patients about proper nutrition and oral health." The American Dietetic Association states that "nutrition is an integral component of oral health," and recommends "collaboration between dietetics and dental professionals . . . for oral health promotion and disease prevention and intervention."

Yet, even with the knowledge of the many relationships between nutrition and oral health, many dental health professionals are still hesitant to give nutrition guidance to their patients. The reason given most often is the feeling of unpreparedness in both the nutrition information and how it should be applied in patient care.

This book was written to help overcome these obstacles by providing:

  • Up to the minute information about the many relationships between nutrition, oral health, and general health.
  • Guidelines for implementing diet screening and guidance into clinical practice.
  • Practical suggestions to help patients with various oral conditions improve their diets.

This book is divided into four sections:

  • Part 1 provides the core information on the basic concepts of human nutrition and their relevance to oral health and dental practice.
  • Part 2 focuses on specific nutrition issues of dental patients and oral conditions.
  • Part 3 provides oral health nutrition information from a lifecycle perspective.
  • Part 4 provides the "nuts and bolts" of integrating meaningful nutrition care into dental practice.

How to Use This Book

This book can serve as a quick reference and as a clinical manual in your patient care program, to enable you to answer patient questions and to integrate nutrition as comfortably as you would fluoride and other preventive modalities.

  • You can use this book as a text, by reading the chapters and answering the questions posed in the cash studies provided, to test your understanding.
  • You can use this book as a "how-to" manual for diet screening and guidance by reading Part 4 and adapting the guidelines and materials provided to your own clinical setting.
  • You can use this book as a reference, by referring to those chapters relating to specific nutrition topics, life cycle groups, or health-related conditions, and referring to the last chapter and the appendix for helpful resources.

We thought long and hard about where best to place information that is germane to more than one chapter. For example, do you discuss osteoporosis in the chapter on minerals, chronic conditions, periodontal disease or aging? Do you cover eating disorders in the chapters on energy metabolism and weight control, diet and teeth, or adolescence? In the end we put the details where they seemed most appropriate and made reference to this in the other chapters. We hope that this will work for you as the reader.

In the last chapter and in the appendix, we have provided a variety of addresses and web sites for your reference. This is not meant to be a complete list, and we apologize to anyone we have overlooked. It is never possible to provide all of the information one might like in a limited number of pages, and we hope that if you have other useful resources, you will share them with us.

We hope that you will find this book useful and informative, and that you will share any knowledge gleaned with your patients and your colleagues towards the end goal of better oral health for all.
