What's the Relationship Between Vitamin D Deficiency and Teeth?

My vitamin D level has been at 21 ng/ml for a year and a half. I have been on prescription medicine but still the level has not come up at all.

My question is this: Approximately 1 year ago, my teeth started going bad. I have crowns, caps and bridges. My front bridge had to be removed and put back in because it started falling out (which it is loosening up again).

I have had to have 4 teeth pulled, and my teeth are chipping and cracking off. I did some research on the internet and read that this could be caused from the vitamin D deficiency.

Is this true?

Your Teeth and Vitamin D Deficiency
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

Hi Theresa,

Yikes! And double yikes!! This is serious. It sounds like you are either:

1) SERIOUSLY deficient in lots of nutrients and not JUST Vitamin D

2) You are just not absorbing nutrients properly.

Either way, you need to:

1) Change a Whole lot in your diet


2) Get that vitamin D level up ASAP!

Theresa, Vitamin D is responsible for absorbing calcium in your body. And if you can't absorb calcium, you can't replace the calcium in your teeth and the bones that hold them in- so they get weaker and are unable to anchor your teeth properly.

If your TEETH are falling out because the bones are so weak, just imagine what the bones in the REST of your body look like!! It's likely that you are developing osteoporosis too!!
So you need to stop this inappropriate bone loss ASAP.

So, you don't say HOW MUCH 'Prescription' vitamin D you are on, but however much it is, it's not enough. Period. Whatever your doctor put you on is a Maintenance dose for you and not a dose to TREAT Vitamin D deficiency. And 'prescription strength' vitamin d is actually INFERIOR to over the counter Vitamin D3 Supplements which are absorbed and utilized by the body much better.

So, this will start helping your calcium to be absorbed, but you also need to have enough calcium in your diet to be absorbed, and you also need magnesium to help the vitamin d convert to its active form and to help the calcium dissolve into solution. And you need Vitamin K to make it all work together, as well as trace minerals.

It's obvious that you haven't been doing this through food, so you need to start taking some high quality supplements.

For your specific condition, I recommend that you take 3 different supplements:

1) Beyond any Multiple- an excellent high quality vitamin and mineral supplement

2) Magnesium Supplements- magnesium works in conjunction with Vitamin D to build strong bones and teeth. When you think of rebuilding bone or teeth, think magnesium, not calcium.

3) Vitamin D 3- to get your Vitamin D levels up to normal.

These will all work together to help your bones and teeth. There are MANY other things that you can do to stop the progression of your problem, but this is a start.

Another Tip for Teeth...
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

Actually two other tips.

1) Start making Homemade Bone Broth and eating some every day. While it takes time to cook, you don't have to DO anything, so it's not time consuming. It is amazing and will provide you with TONS of trace nutrients that are hard to get anywhere else.

2) Download the Ebook Money by the Mouthful right now! You will need this extraordinarily useful dental information that you just aren't going to get anywhere else. It was written by a dentist who wanted to teach people how to halt- and even reverse- the progression of their tooth disease.

Start doing all of these things now and heal your mouth. It is NOT inevitable that you lose your teeth, but it will be if you don't start taking steps to stop the obvious progression of your dental disease right now.
