Dietary and Nutritional Counselling
We all know the importance of cutting down on sugar and brushing daily — but optimal dental care goes far beyond these simple measures! Without proper nutritional advice it is much harder for you to maintain your oral and general health in the long term.
Your body needs the correct levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants just to maintain itself. We often find an imbalance in nutrition results in sensitive teeth (from a dry acidic mouth), tight and sore neck muscles (from a magnesium deficiency) and nasal congestion (from dietary allergies).
Any vitamin, mineral or antioxidant deficiency should be corrected as soon as possible. Nutrients our body needs can be missing due to not being in our diet, from chronic allergy conditions or when they are blocked from working due to heavy metal toxicity.
Dr Malik will provide you with comprehensive information and advise whether your nutrition is influencing your overall health and that of your teeth.
