What is Dental Nutritional Counseling?

There is a strong link between nutrition and oral health: the mouth is a pathway to the rest of the body! Food intake imbalances have long-lasting repercussions on health and lead to an increased appetite for unhealthy cravings.

Dental nutritional counseling builds upon a pediatric dentist’s expertise by considering how food affects your child’s mouth. Making choices that positively affect dental health and nutrition is key to getting on the best path toward a healthy smile. 

That’s why we work with you to create a plan that makes sense for your family. Our nutritional plans feature an equally healthy and yummy mix of unrefined carbohydrates, veggies, fruits, protein, and low-fat dairy!

Why is Dental Nutrition Important to Oral Health?

Food choices can influence the health of your child’s teeth, particularly because they have not finished growing. 

A healthy diet for teeth that includes foods rich in fiber, protein, vitamins, and calcium is essential to build a healthy body and brilliant smile! The nutrient content of food is essential in growing tissue and fueling the immune system.

Sticking to a diet that’s lower in sugar or empty calories can prevent cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and other serious health problems.

What to Expect From Nutritional Education

Dental nutritional education starts with an initial assessment. We will peek into your child’s mouth, ask about dietary habits, and develop a nutritional plan that fits into your family’s lifestyle.

Dr. Chuck and the team recommend ways to include a blend of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables in your child’s diet. Following a plan will help decrease dental diseases and tooth decay and enhance overall health.
