Tariq Drabu in Manchester said “A practice paper published in the Oral Health and Nutrition section of the Academy of Nutrition website has found a link between diet and oral health. Diet and nutrition has a big impact on oral health, patients that eat plenty of vegetables, fruit and dairy have less of a risk of having dental cavities. The good news is that these foods don’t contain any sugars. Less acidic foods can also reduce the risk of dental cavities.”

Tariq Drabu went on to say “I have spoken before on the importance of eliminating sugary drinks from the diet, patients don’t realise the impact that soft and sports drinks have on their teeth. All sugared drinks will contribute to problems such as tooth erosion and cavities.”

Tariq Drabu closed in saying “The best way that we keep our patients informed at the Langley Dental Practice is through education. We are constantly speaking to our patients about the importance of dental hygiene and why it’s so important for them to attend their regular dental check-ups. These are some of the ways we ensure our patients are treated to the highest level, enabling us to catch problems early on. Now we will be adding nutrition to our list of things to discuss with patients, changing their diet for the better doesn’t only impact their oral health, it improves their overall health and wellness.”
