Vitamin D and Its Impact on Cavities

I've taken this blog post from an email I received about Vitamin D and the effect it can have on Cavities. This is an excerpt from that email:

Study: Vitamin D has a positive impact on caries rates

By Kathy Kincade, Editor in Chief

Research has shown a positive link between vitamin D and oral and systemic health, the IOM noted; however, these studies have yielded “ conflicting and mixed results and do not offer the evidence needed to confirm that vitamin D has these effects.”

Now a new systematic review, conducted by Philippe Hujoel, PhD, DDS, MSD, MS, of the University of Washington School of Dentistry and School of Public Health, points to a positive association between vitamin D and lower rates of dental caries (Nutrition Reviews, November 9, 2012).

On your initial evaluation appointment, our biological dentist doesn't just evaluate your gum and teeth. They will analyze deeper into your oral health by evaluating your whole body health, nutrition, and any lifestyle that may affect your oral wellness and give you a recommendation accordingly. Our goal is to strengthen your preventative care so you have fewer dental treatment visits.
