Consumptions of dairy products will help in developing and improving oral health and in the process reduce the risk of diseases related to the gums often known as periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease affects the tooth and the tissues around the tooth and is one of the primary causes of tooth loss among adults. Medical researchers have also highlighted the fact that people affected with periodontitis are likely to develop other serious health problems like diabetes, osteoporosis, and respiratory issues.

Dairy Products are rich in protein, vitamins, calcium, and potassium which are essential in maintaining the overall health of an individual. The United States Department of Agriculture also reiterates this fact that adults should consume about two to three servings of dairy products daily.
