Nutritional Counseling and Your Health
During a nutritional counseling session, our health coach will discuss your oral health, general health, and diet with you. Together, you will talk about what’s beneficial in your diet and where there is room for improvement. We will work with you, as a team, to develop a healthy lifestyle that can help you overcome some of the barriers to healthy teeth and gums.
Who Can Nutritional Counseling Help?
Nutritional counseling can be beneficial to almost anyone but is especially helpful for those who suffer from chronic medical or oral health conditions, who are overweight, or who are undergoing major changes in their bodies due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or menopause.
What Is the Connection Between Nutritional Counseling and Oral Health?
Every tissue and structure in your body requires nutrients to remain strong and function as they are intended. Your oral health is no exception. Good nutrition helps ensure that your teeth and gums have sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals (such as calcium, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin C, and vitamin D) that they need to remain in good health.
Just as eating the right foods can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong, consuming the wrong ones could put you at an increased risk for gum disease and tooth decay. Nutritional counseling helps you learn which foods are healthy for your body and your teeth so that you can make better meal and snack choices.
