Interest in nutrition, diet, and health has never been higher than during the last ten years. Departments of health in most countries have issued guidelines for healthy eating. These guidelines have in turn been interpreted by health educators who, in cooperation with media, have encouraged people to improve their own health by eating more sensibly. In this book, the international literature on nutrition, diet, and dental health is reviewed and summarized, so that those who provide dietary advice, either to individual patients or on a community basis, have up-to-date, comprehensive, and easily assimilated information. The main dental diseases: dental caries, periodontal disease, enamel hypoplasia, and dental erosion, are discussed in detail. Throughout, there is an emphasis on guiding the reader towards sensible practical advice, with particular reference to special groups: the young child, adolescents, the sick child, adults, and the elderly.
