Do Your Teeth Benefit When You Take a Daily Vitamin?

Posted on 12/10/2021 by Barbara Ketchum
Do Your Teeth Benefit When You Take a Daily Vitamin?When it comes to maintaining good oral health, you need to do more than just brushing and flossing. The type of foods you eat can affect your oral health significantly. One of the nutrients known to keep your teeth in good condition is vitamins. Vitamins can help strengthen your teeth and give them the ability to fight off oral infections.

Why Take Vitamins for Teeth?

The mouth and gums are the first contact areas for nutrients you consume. This means that your mouth is pivotal in starting the digestion process. By chewing food, you extract the highest amount of nutrients present in it. This is means that your mouth could be the biggest beneficiary of nutrients. Vitamins are one of the nutrients that get absorbed into your system within a short time. Keep in mind that there are different types of nutrients, with each one of them boosting your oral health in one way or another.

Vitamin C is one of the most essential vitamins. This nutrient is not only ideal for your teeth but also for your gums. Vitamin C plays an essential role in keeping the connective tissues in your gums strong and healthy. These connective tissues also hold your teeth in place. This means that without a sufficient supply of vitamin C, you could suffer from gum disease and bleeding gums.

In addition, vitamin C supplements are known to reduce tooth erosion in children. Therefore, it is recommended that you consume as many vitamins as possible. Some of the foods rich in vitamins include broccoli, sweet potatoes, peppers, and citrus fruits. It is important to be cautious with sources of vitamin C because some could be acidic. Consuming acidic foods or fruits can be harmful to your teeth because they cause tooth erosion. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on the benefits of vitamins.
