5 Supplements to Boost Oral Health

December 29, 2020 10:25 pm

The health of your teeth and gums is largely in your control. For example, by brushing and flossing daily and visiting our Bright Smiles Dental team for routine cleanings and checkups, you will promote good oral health. Additionally, maintaining a healthy diet will contribute greatly to good oral health. Although we always recommend obtaining your nutrients from whole food as much as possible, supplements can be an extra boost.

In this blog post, we discuss 5 nutrients that come in supplement form that can help boost your oral health. Please consult with your primary care physician before adding a supplement to your daily regimen.

  1. Calcium
  2. You’ve heard it builds strong bones. Well, it builds strong teeth, too! If you don’t consume enough calcium, your body will compensate by taking it from your teeth and bones. To avoid that, calcium supplements can be a big help.

  3. Vitamin D3
  4. Vitamin D3 is a nutrient many of us are low on, especially with our long dark Massachusetts winters! Vitamin D3 is an important nutrient that helps you absorb calcium and other minerals that make your body strong and healthy.

  5. Vitamin A
  6. This vitamin can help with the absorption of other nutrients. It will also help keep your gums healthy and strengthen your immune system so you can fight decay and infection.

  7. Magnesium
  8. This powerful supplement works with calcium to help remineralize your teeth. They work hand-in-hand. Without magnesium, calcium can’t go to work strengthening your teeth and bones.

  9. Vitamin K2
  10. This vitamin is another important component in the tooth remineralization process. Vitamin K2 works with D3 and calcium to remineralize teeth and bones, heal early-stage decay, and more.
