Our bodies need vitamins and minerals to function efficiently but which ones and how much? Probiotic use is a fast-growing market. What are the implications for use in dentistry? How can we be certain supplement claims are true? Do food trends have a potential impact on oral health? As dental professionals, we need to be aware of the changing landscape of probiotic use, dietary supplements and food fads and how these trends could potentially impact patient care.
1) Define probiotics and identify common probiotics indicated for use in dentistry.
2) Vitamins and mineral supplementation specific to the needs of various patient populations.
3) Discuss varying food trends and the indication for patient care.
