This message from Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry is about Vitamin D. It’s an important mineral for healthy teeth and bones. However, many of us fail to get adequate amounts.

Here is a sampling of Vitamin D findings:

“Several recent reports demonstrate a significant association between periodontal health and the intake of Vitamin D.” 1

“Researchers who took a second look at a series of clinical trials conducted on 2,000 children in several countries between the 1920s and 1980s determined Vitamin D — which we often garner from sunlight — was associated with around a 50 percent reduction in the incidence of tooth decay.”2
