Are You Getting Your Dose Of Vitamin D?

Most people know that vitamin D is important for healthy teeth and bones, but many of us fail to get adequate amounts. Today’s article is a friendly reminder to our patients, especially expectant mothers, about the importance of vitamin D to dental health in Bloomfield.

Improving Dental Health in Bloomfield

Much of vitamin D can be garnered from sunlight. Several recent studies show an association between gum health and the intake of vitamin D.  Furthermore, researchers have determined that vitamin D is associated with around a 50 percent reduction in the incidence of tooth decay. Inadequate vitamin D levels can result in dental cavities for children even if they’re just a year old.

The sun is an excellent source of vitamin D, but it is hard to quantify how much vitamin D you get from the sun. It’s also to keep in mind that you can skin cancer can result from overexposure to sunlight. If you don’t get enough sunlight, supplements can fill in the gaps for you. Unless you enjoy a diet that includes fatty fish or fish liver oils, it may be hard to get enough vitamin D naturally without eating fortified foods or taking a supplement. One of the largest sources for vitamin D comes from fortified dairy, along with some yogurts and cereals.
