Why Do Your Teeth Require Vitamin D?

Posted on 2/29/2020 by Roberta Cerveny, DDS
Why Do Your Teeth Require Vitamin D?Most of us have long known about the countless health benefits that are associated with getting the proper amount of Vitamin D. A number of our body's functions are greatly aided by Vitamin D.

This includes our hair, skin, immune systems, brain function, as well as our lung efficiency and cardiovascular system. But another huge benefit that we are beginning to learn more about is what it can do for our oral health. To get a better idea about how this do-all vitamin can help us better care for our dental needs, let's take a look at two of the more important things it can do.

Increased Calcium Absorption

Calcium is essential for not only building strong and healthy teeth as children, but also in keeping them in good condition as we get older. In addition to boosting our bodies' bone density, Vitamin D also aids in absorbing, transporting, and depositing calcium throughout the body to the places it is needed. This important nutrient is available in a number of foods, as well as from the rays of the sun.

Reduction in Gum Inflammation

Not only does Vitamin D have a huge part in absorbing and distributing calcium, it also has a direct effect on things such as gum inflammation, recession, and the development of gum disease. Since it has been proven to have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects, it acts as a deterrent to the oral microbes which can lead to gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.

To learn more about the role that Vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals play in oral health, please feel free to call or stop by our office and discuss these things further with a member of our staff. We are available at your next convenience.
