Dietary Counseling is said to be the best way of preventing teeth carriers.  This was disclosed by Dr. Abdurrahman Bala Malami and Chick Oguchi at the Clinical Presentation of Child Dental Department.

Dr. Malami said that carriers is the progressive destruction of teeth by decay and this is as a result of eating food rich in sucrose.  He explained that, tooth decay is caused by fermentable carbohydrate, especially sucrose, which is more dangerous to the teeth.

On his part, Dr Oguchi said the main objective of dietary counseling is for the prevention of carriers and advised parents to monitor the food their children eat, especially sugary food such as chocolates, ice cream etc.

He further urged people to eat solid food and chew less sugary chewing gum to prevent dental carries and emphasized on the common risk concept in promoting general health.
