Get to the root of it all...learn more about the link between nutrition and oral health.
Dietitians recognize that there is a link between your mouth and the foods you eat. Oral infections and diseases along with acute, chronic and terminal illnesses with oral symptoms can impact not only our ability to consume food properly, but also our health and nutrition status.
For many people, an annual dental exam is a luxury.
The data shows that 1/3 of older adults have untreated dental issues. 40% of this group have periodontal disease. Older adults living in poverty have twice as many dental problems as other income groups.
Oral heath issues can be overcome with a focus on dental health education and regular visits to a dentist office. Arm yourself with the facts, and take your dental health care seriously.
