GONZALEZ SANZ, Ángel Miguel; GONZALEZ NIETO, Blanca Aurora  and  GONZALEZ NIETO, Esther. Dental health: relationship between dental caries and food consumption. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2013, vol.28, suppl.4, pp.64-71. ISSN 1699-5198.

Although the reduction and prevalence of dental caries in many countries has been largely associated with the use of fluorine and improving dental hygiene, eating habits also play a role in the development of caries. Fermentable carbohydrates characteristics of the food, rate of consumption, food protectors, the quality and quantity of saliva indices that determine the remineralization of teeth are factors to be considered. All these elements are analyzed through the sociodemographic, behavioral, physical and biological environment directly or indirectly with diet and caries.
