Diet & Oral Health - Dental Health Week 2018


Wondering how eating and drinking affect your oral health?

The reality is our eating habits play a major role in tooth decay, which is a diet-related disease. Sugars in the food and drinks we eat are taken up by bacteria, producing acids that attack the outer layer of tooth enamel to cause decay.

This Australian Dental Association's (ADA) fact sheet explains in detail how diet and oral health correlate, and provides suggestions on maintaining good oral health.

What you can do to maintain healthy teeth:

  1. Limit sugary treats to meal times, rather than between meals.
  2. Drink fluoridated tap water throughout the day and after meals.
  3. Chew sugar-free gum after eating.
