Also called: Diet management
Your dentist and dental hygienist can be a resource for diet and nutritional counseling to improve your oral and physical health. Diet that is conducive to a healthy lifestyle is also good for your teeth, gums and palate.
Patients with new dentures can benefit from nutritional counseling to learn how to eat with dentures. Adults and children with cavities can also benefit from counseling on healthy food and drink choices.
If you have a chronic health condition, such as cancer, diabetes or eating disorders, your dentist or dental hygienist can refer you to a registered dietician to develop meal plans and strategies to assist you.
