How Vitamins Play a Role in Making Gum Disease Treatment More Effective

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Todd Jorgenson
How Vitamins Play a Role in Making Gum Disease Treatment More EffectiveDiet greatly impacts our dental health just like it does to our overall health. Given that your teeth are the first contact point with food, you should stick to healthy foods and chew them properly to extract maximum benefits from the food. Eating foods rich in vitamins will promote good oral health. Vitamins also protect your gums from inflammation and aid in building gum tissues.

Gum protection from inflammation


Gum disease thrives with the accumulation of bacteria and plaque around your gum line, resulting in inflammation. Inflammation is the body's way of fighting infections, and if you have a weaker immunity, this inflammation may persist, creating pockets around your gum tissues where bacteria continue to thrive. Inflamed gums are painful, making it difficult to practice oral hygiene. Consuming foods rich in vitamins C, D, and E can help your body fight infections given their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The anti-inflammatory property keeps the inflammation in check as you continue with dental treatment and prescriptions. On the other hand, the antioxidant property of these vitamins helps heal and repair your gum tissues. The result is a reduction in the severity of the infection, hastening the healing process.

Building gum tissue


Vitamin C is specifically useful for gum health. Besides its antioxidant property, vitamin C helps in the buildup of the connective tissues necessary for good gum health. Vitamin C also helps in the buildup of collagen, useful in maintaining and repairing gum tissues and periodontal ligaments. Thus, incorporating this vitamin into your diet will help restore your gum health by rebuilding damaged tissues. Given the above benefits of vitamins, you should talk to us if you have a deficiency, and we will recommend supplements. Also, while vitamins promote good gum health, they are not a substitute for oral hygiene. Thus, you should continue with regular brushing and flossing to keep your mouth healthy. You should also schedule regular visits with us for dental exams and cleanings. For more details on vitamins and gum health, contact our office today.
