Does your diet contain plenty of vitamins and minerals? It’s essential for good dental health, for example, fighting infection and disease and building strong bones and teeth. Ideally, you will get all the nutrients you need from your diet or dietary supplements and enjoying the summer weather. We’ve listed some of the most important vitamins for teeth and gums.

Calcium

Calcium helps to build stronger bones and teeth, and it prevents gum disease. You find this mineral in dairy products and beans, and many foods are fortified with calcium.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps maintain strong and healthy gums and prevents tooth decay. Good sources include citrus fruits and lots of other fruits and vegetables, including sweet potatoes and red peppers.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is important for helping your body to absorb calcium. The simplest way to get vitamin D is to enjoy the sunlight for 15 minutes each day, making sure your face and arms exposed so your body can make its own vitamin D. Otherwise, good sources of vitamin D include eggs, milk and fish.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A helps your body to produce plenty of saliva, a protective fluid that helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease by washing away harmful bacteria and food particles. You can find vitamin A in dark leafy greens, carrots, sweet potatoes and peppers.
