Why Your Teeth Struggle When You Don't Get Enough Vitamin D
Posted on 1/10/2018 by Giri Palani
Your teeth have bones in them like any other part of your body. Because of this, if you are not getting enough Vitamin D, your teeth will struggle to survive. Why? Because Vitamin D helps keep the bones strong just as much as Calcium does and without enough of it, your teeth are going to give you a hard time.
They will start to hurt and may even start to decay and fall out eventually. Here are a few different ways to get more Vitamin D in your diet for the health of your teeth and your whole body.
Get More Sunlight Getting outside more often when the sun is shining will help you get the Vitamin D you need to have a healthy mouth and a healthy body overall. Get out and do more with your family and friends. Play more sports and have some healthy fun or just lay out and get a suntan. Just do not lay out in the sun too long because it can cause skin cancer. However, the more sunshine you get, the more your mouth and health overall will thank you for it.
Drink More Milk Milk is good for you anyway but because it has Vitamin D in it, it is really good for the bones in your teeth and the rest of your health. Milk is good for you overall. You can drink it in a glass or cup or add it to your cereal or other types of foods you can eat with it. Just make sure to get enough Vitamin D by drinking plenty of milk every day.
