Vitamin D = Better Oral Health!

We all know Vitamin D is essential for healthy life but did you know that Vitamin D is also good for oral health?

Not only does Vitamin D help prevent tooth decay, it can also help prevent gingivitis and cavities. Even though you may brush and floss your teeth daily, tooth decay can sill occur if you have low Vitamin D levels.

If you are experiencing tooth decay even with using proper dental care practices, you may want to take the needed steps to increase your Vitamin D levels:
  • Spend 10 minutes in the sun each day without sunblock.
  • Eat foods high in Vitamin D (Fish).
  • Drink 2 glasses of milk each day.
  • Take a Vitamin D supplement.
Following these steps might lead you to a healthier smile!

*To find out if you have low Vitamin D levels, visit your primary care physician for a simple blood test*
