Abstract

This article updates the evidence linking dietary factors to dental caries in preschool children and recommends dietary approaches to reduce caries risk. Along with nutritional factors, a comprehensive approach to preventing dental caries in preschool children must include good oral hygiene, appropriate use of fluorides, and access to preventive and restorative dental care.
