Abstract

Our recent BJSM editorial stressed that it is ‘time for action’ regarding sports nutrition oral health1. Oral health is poor in elite athletes and is consistently associated with performance impacts as we have shown across studies involving more than 800 athletes2-4. This situation exists despite poor oral health being preventable with well evidenced effective, low-cost strategies5. Since solutions are readily available why does this situation persist and what can be done to benefit athlete performance and health?
