FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

New York, NY, July 11, 2016 - Dr. Dmitry Epelboym, Principal of the Cosmetic Dentistry Center, one of the most highly respected dentists in NYC commented on a recent study connecting the DASH diet, a diet initially developed to help heart health, with improved dental health.

The DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) was originally developed to help lower blood pressure but a recent study has found it could lead to better overall dental health. During the study researchers with the Veterans Affairs Dental Longitudinal Study tracked the dental health of a group of men aged between 47 and 90 who had dental examinations every three years, over a period of 20 years. As part of this examination the men were checked for tooth root cavities that can occur as a result of gum recession. When the gums pull away from the teeth, this exposes the tooth roots which softer and are more vulnerable to developing cavities than the crown of the tooth that is protected with dental enamel. Cavities in the tooth roots can ultimately lead to the loss of these teeth.

The study also looked at how the participant’s diet matched the DASH diet which has an emphasis on low-fat dairy foods, dietary fiber, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and limited amounts of sugars. Those participants whose diet closely matched the DASH diet registered 30% lower when being assessed on the chances of them developing new cavities or additional cavities in their tooth roots.

Commenting on the study, Dr. Epelboym said “Although interesting, this study doesn’t conclusively show that the DASH diet can be better for dental health, even though it is based on eating healthily which is bound to have an overall effect on general health. Eating a better quality diet helps to boost people’s overall health, enabling their body to better fight any dental infections.”

Generally, dentists do recommend patients follow a diet low in sugars, but dental health is also influenced by how frequently the sugars are consumed. Dr. Epelboym went on to say “Dentists will generally offer patients personalized advice on how their diet will affect their dental health and this is certainly something we frequently do for people visiting our dental office.”
