In this podcast I have a great discussion with a good friend of mine from Sydney - Dr Steven Lin - discussing nutrition and dental health.
We talk about the structure of our jaws, dentition and how nutrition affects the development of airway structure in growing children.
We also discuss the need for more collaboration between dentists, doctors and nutrition professionals and more connected thinking when it comes to health promotion.
In this episode we cover:How nutrition can affect gum and teeth healthWe discuss the importance of the microbiota to oral healthHow our ‘oral microbiota’ is related to diseaseWhat we can learn from ancestral diets and teethThe issue of ‘natural’ and ‘unrefined’ sugarsVitamin D as an important micronutrient for dental healthHow understanding your mouth is important to understanding the rest of your body
