Are Multivitamins Also Good for Your Teeth?Different types of vitamins play different roles in your body. These essential nutrients are responsible for your well-being. They are also helpful in keeping your teeth healthy and strong. Ideally, these vitamins should be coming from the food you eat. Most healthy food sources are easy to digest and absorb into your body. But it may be difficult for you to access foods rich in vitamins. When this happens, your only option will be vitamin supplements such as multivitamins. These supplements are ideal for your oral health when you take them daily. 

The Best Multivitamins for Your Teeth

Multivitamins are supplements that contain vitamins and minerals. They comprise minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, and phosphorus. The vitamins include vitamins A, C, D, E, B-3 (niacin), and B-2 (riboflavin). Calcium helps in bone health, which means it is essential for your dental health as well. Lack of calcium makes your body to extract some minerals from your bones and teeth, leading to tooth decay and weak bones. Iron, however, is responsible for fighting off inflammation and infections such as gum disease and gingivitis. Potassium and phosphorus prevent demineralization of your teeth. 

On the other hand, vitamin A, B-3, and B-2 help in dental health. They prevent oral inflammation and sores. These multivitamins can treat inflamed gums, canker sores, and injuries in your mouth. Vitamin C helps strengthen connective tissue in the mouth. Lack of it can make your teeth to become weak, loose, and prone to gum diseases or gingivitis. Mostly, this vitamin prevents scurvy that causes loss of teeth. Vitamin D promotes oral health indirectly. It helps in calcium absorption, which in turn contributes to strong, healthy teeth. And vitamin E comes with anti-inflammatory properties, meaning that it can reduce inflammation in your mouth.
