Sound eating habits which emphasize the principles of good nutrition promote dental health. A program of preventive dentistry pointing out this relationship between diet and health is presented. Teeth and gums quickly demonstrate the effects of dietary excesses or deficiencies; good teeth and good bodily health are interdependent. Each meal should end with a food that stimulates the flow of saliva. Diets should contain raw fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads, eggs, milk, meat or cheese, butter and natural sweets such as honey and fruit. Soft drinks and refined sugar and flour products cause tooth decay. More natural foods and fewer processed foods are recommended. Foods grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides and free of chemical additives should be eaten. Artificial fluoridation of water is not seen as an effective way of preventing dental caries; healthy teeth from healthy diets are the best defense against tooth decay
