Description:
A growing body of evidence now shows the direct link between nutrition and oral health. However, many dental professionals feel inadequately prepared to effectively counsel patients on healthy eating. This informative lecture will explore how macronutrients, micronutrients, glycemic index/load, dietary patterns and sugar substitutes impact oral health, periodontal disease and overall health. Learn the cutting-edge science behind the recommendations.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand the role of macronutrients in health and chronic disease.
  • learn how poor glycemic control exacerbates periodontal disease.
  • identify the key components of glycemic index and glycemic load.
  • recognize the relationship between cardiovascular and periodontal disease.
  • discuss the role of chronic inflammation and adverse health outcomes.
  • become familiar with the dietary inflammatory index and how to use it in the health setting.
  • understand how to counsel patients about sugar and sugar substitutes.
  • describe the signs and symptoms of celiac disease and understand difference between celiac, wheat allergy and gluten sensitivity to better counsel dental patients.
