Vitamin D Can Have a Positive Impact on Cavities

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

Study: Vitamin D has 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).
