In addition, milk and milk products contain substances that are protective against dental caries. 1039/9781849734929-00016 26 Chapter 2  The use of chewing gum sweetened with sugar alcohols, xylitol or sorbitol, is recommended.  Modest amounts of sugars can be tolerated, if good oral hygiene habits are practised and topical fluoride is in use.  Although sugars and foods differ in their cariogenicity, the role of an individual food component is never as important as the diet as a whole. Key Facts  In Western world, the prevalence and severity of dental caries has declined during the last decades, but caries treatment is still one of the most common procedures in dental practice.

In individuals with good oral hygiene and frequent fluoride exposure, even higher levels of sugar consumption may be tolerated (Zero 2004). 3 The Relation between Different Sugars and Dental Health Although caries is a multifactorial disease and no specific sugar can explain the caries risk in contemporary industrialised countries (Marshall et al. 2007), there are differences between different sugars in respect to dental caries. 1 Starches Starches are glucose polymers which vary both in length and branching.

2. For a long period of human history, honey was an important source of carbohydrates and was the only widely available sweetener. The sweet taste is mainly due to the amount of fructose. 3. Honey seems to have the potential to clear infection as well as to be an effective prophylactic agent that may contribute to reducing the risks of cross-infection. This is due, in a great part, to its high concentration in honey. 4. In diabetics, consuming honey may have the same effect as sugar, however, honey with a high concentration of fructose has a low glycemic index.
