Description:
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nutrient shortfalls are more common than realized for numerous vitamins and minerals. The use of dietary supplements has become commonplace in the United States. Some nutritional supplements have been shown through scientific investigation to benefit oral and overall health; however, there remain concerns regarding safety and quality. All members of the health care team should be familiar with the evidence of safety and benefit for the most commonly used dietary supplements to enhance patient outcomes and reduce the risk of adverse events associated with dental procedures.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • recognize the importance of calcium and vitamin D in oral and overall health.
  • understand the role of folic acid and vitamin B12 in oral health and identify populations at risk for deficiency.
  • understand the role of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in oral and overall health and identify effective strategies for increasing intake.
  • identify the risk and benefits of vitamin A and carotenoids in oral and bone health.
  • learn the evidence for zinc and zinc-l-carnosine in oral health.
  • identify key risks and benefits of commonly used dietary and botanical supplements on oral health and during dental procedures.
