AWARENESS OF ORAL HYGIENE IN ATHLETES AND THEIR NUTRITION. A MINIREVIEW

Poor oral hygiene is an important issue, as it can cause pain, adverse effects and psychosocial impacts on morale and quality of life, as well as long-term effects. Also self-reporting data also show an effect on the training and progress of athletes. Athlete's oral health can be threatened by multiple items such as dietary supplements, oral dehydration, immune suppression triggered by exercise, lack of awareness and negative behaviors. Oral diseases can be avoided in theory, however, by simple interventions with clear proofs of efficacy. This paper aims to raise awareness, in addition to future study plans of oral health issues in elite sports, and proposes prevention and health promotion strategies.

Keywords: Oral Hygiene, Raise Awareness, Athletes Diet.
