Vitamin D and teeth

by Marike

I have a 15 year old son and everytime we go to the dentist he needs fillings. Today we went and he needs a couple of fillings that showed up on xray. The dentist wants him to take strong fluoride toothpaste.

I am not sure about it.
So I decided to research it and it comes to me if Vitamin D could help him. You see Liam is around 5ft 7" and just under 100 pounds. He is very slim and does not eat anything to give him calcium (though he has in the last month started with a calcium and magnesium supplement)

Would Vitamin D help him get stronger teeth and bones?

Vitamin d and cavities
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Well, it's very likely that over there in the UK, both you AND your son are quite deficient in Vitamin D. I would FIRST suggest that you get a vitamin d level done because I'm betting that you will likely be SHOCKED to find out how low both your levels are and that will spur you on to continue taking it- and you get BOTH of your levels up in the normal range and to keep them there.

So, please read my page on Vitamin D Therapy page to learn about the details on how to go about doing that (for BOTH of you- not just him!!).

While taking calcium and magnesium are good, no matter how much calcium anyone takes, they are not going to absorb much if you are vitamin d deficient. And teeth are made up of much more than calcium- they are made up of all sorts of minerals- is he eating a variety of fruits and vegetables that have high levels of minerals?

Also, cavities are likely much more a problem of bacteria in the mouth all of the time sitting on the teeth and leading to cavities- and further down the road, periodontal disease.

Fluoride toothpaste is NOT going to address that. So, I recommend that you take a look at the Ebook that I offer called Money By the Mouthful that I offer. It's by a dentist who spent his entire career NOT filling teeth- because he taught his patients how to NOT get cavities! And he teaches you exactly the techniques that he taught HIS patients to stay cavity free for life!!

Take a look at Money By the Mouthful- it will DEFINITELY open your eyes to what your dentist is NOT telling you- and why he has a financial interest in not telling you these things!
