Which Vitamins Do Your Teeth Need Most?
Posted on 7/26/2021 by Everwell Dentistry
In order to function properly, our bodies need vitamins. From hair and skin health to organs and bones, every vitamin helps maintain and heal our bodies differently. For our teeth, there are specific vitamins that affect them better than others. It is all right to take a multi-vitamin during the day, but sufficient vitamins should be consumed as food for the best and biggest benefits to your body and health.
Improtant Vitamins and Where to Find Them
The first vitamin that anyone thinks of when they think of teeth is calcium. It was a common saying in the last few decades to say that the best source of calcium was cow's milk—since “milk helps you build strong bones.” But in fact, there are better sources for calcium, including broccoli and Greek yogurt.
Vitamin D is also critical to your bodily health and your teeth, as this is the vitamin that affects bone density. Our bodies create this when exposed to sunlight, but unless we are outside every day, it is easy to become deficient in vitamin D. Foods that can help this are portobello mushrooms or foods that have added vitamin D, like some orange juices or cereals.
Potassium is one of the other necessary vitamins that directly affect your teeth. Our bodies use vitamin K by helping to block bone-degrading substances like foods with high-acid content. Foods with vitamin K include kale and spinach, broccoli, and other leafy greens.
