Vegetarians Have Better Oral Health Than Meat Eaters

If you want improved oral health, become a vegetarian.

A new study from German researchers indicates that vegetarians have better dental health than their meat-eating counterparts. The Department of Conservative Dentistry, Periodontology and Preventive Dentistry at the Hannover Medical School showed that vegetarians have healthier gums than meat eaters. The study also demonstrated that vegetarians are at a reduced risk for tooth loss, bleeding and inflamed gums.

On the other hand, the study showed that vegetarians don’t visit the dentist as often as meat eaters. This could be the reason why vegetarians have more cases of dental decay.

If a person maintains good oral health, the only downside of being a vegetarian may be the lack of exposure to certain vitamins or minerals.

A person’s diet is one of the main factors in how their oral health is. A healthy diet, combined with regular dental visits, could go a long way toward preventing gum disease, tooth decay or most other oral health problems.
