We all know that to have good dental health, we need to look after our teeth. Yet, preventable dental diseases such as tooth decay and dental erosion are very common health problems in Australia. Regular tooth brushing and flossing (at least twice a day), as well as regular visits to the dentist are only just the start. Good nutrition and eating habits also play a key role in preventing tooth decay and dental erosion.

As you get older, lifestyles and appetites change which affects the types and amounts of food we eat. A decreasing appetite or reduced ability to buy and prepare healthy foods can mean that many older people don’t get enough essential vitamins, minerals and fibre, and this can contribute to general unwellness or exacerbate some chronic illness.

Food and nutrition can have a significant impact to quality of life by meeting the physical, functional and experiential needs of clients.
