Vitamins Can Boost Your Oral Health

Posted on 1/10/2018 by Todd Jorgenson
Vitamins East Valley Implant & Periodontal Center AZ 85204Our daily diet may not be enough to match the recommended intake of vitamins and minerals. This is why supplements are crucial to maintain oral health. This is even more important as we age, when our bodies' ability to bounce back is not as strong anymore.

Aside from a healthy diet, you need to understand the right vitamins and nutrients that will help you maintain your pearly whites, but also help keep your mouth from being a toxic dump of bacteria.

What are the Vitamins that Contribute to Healthy Teeth?

The most obvious, of course, would be a healthy dose of phosphorous and calcium. Your teeth are made up of phosphorous, calcium and dentine, which in and of itself is covered by enamel.

Pound-for-pound, there's not a bone in your body that is stronger than your teeth. There's also a positive side effect of taking your daily dose of calcium-it can also help make your bones stronger, which would be invaluable when you get older.

Vitamin D is another crucial addition to your daily diet because this one will help better calcium absorption in the body. Without vitamin D, you won't be able to break down the calcium and phosphorus and maximize their benefits for oral health. The good news is you don't even have to spend anything. Just spend 15 minutes about 3-4 times a week under the sun and you would be good.

Vitamin C, meanwhile, will help prevent gum inflammation as well as tooth loss. This one helps our body boost the connective tissue, and it also acts as an antioxidant which helps boost our immune system. Another vitamin that can help boost oral health is Vitamin A, which also has the antioxidant, beta-carotene, to fight against free radicals.
