How to maintain healthy teeth

Let’s start with a simple reminder of the basic rules of good dental hygiene:

But good dental health also means eating a varied, balanced diet, rich in vitamins and other nutrients…

Vitamins crucial for the teeth and gums

Key role of vitamin D in dental health

Top of the list of vitamins important for dental health is vitamin D: it plays a central role in maintaining strong, healthy teeth:

Vitamin D is primarily produced by exposure of the skin to sunlight but is also found in oily fish such as herring, sardines and salmon, as well as in some mushrooms, egg yolk, dark chocolate and butter. For a more significant intake, you can also take vitamin D supplements (such as Vitamin D3 Spray 2000 IU).

Vitamin C, collagen and teeth

Let’s not forget the indispensable vitamin C:

Good levels of vitamin C can be found in fruits and vegetables such as peppers, papaya, kiwi, citrus fruit, broccoli… and even more so in vitamin C supplements (such as Asc2P).

Two more vitamins good for dental health

Other vitamins which appear to play an important role in dental health include vitamin A. It supports immune system function (and thus helps prevent oral infections), and contributes to cell regeneration and the formation of tooth enamel.

Good dietary sources are offal, carrots, sweet potatoes and pumpkin (you could also try the supplement Carottol, rich in beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A).

Another such nutrient is vitamin K. Studies suggest this vitamin activates proteins that support calcium deposition in bones and teeth (4).

To obtain vitamin K from the diet, opt for cabbage, spinach or chard (or alternatively, take a supplement such as Complete K).

Other supplements excellent for the teeth

In terms of supplementation, it would be remiss not to mention certain minerals! Let’s remember the key role played by calcium and magnesium in helping to maintain normal teeth.

Certain probiotics have also been studied for the potential to support oral hygiene (such as those combined in the supplement Oral Health).

And many people like to use natural toothpastes with whitening and antibacterial properties (such as Power Smile™ Toothpaste), and sugar-free chewing gum for reducing dental plaque and promoting fresh breath (such as Mastic Gum Elma).
