Important Vitamins For Optimal Dental Health

Children are known to be fuzzy eaters. They have their fixed menu which most of the time includes fast foods like pizza or sugary foods like pancakes. But does all that provide the necessary vitamins needed for healthy gums and teeth? When it comes to promoting healthy teeth in children, parents have to incorporate some food items that contain micronutrients crucial for dental health. AIMS Dentistry, the leading name for Child Dentistry In Mississauga, enumerates the necessary nutrients for teeth and gums. You also need to know the food items that you must include in day to day diet.
  • Vitamin AVitamin A is a powerful antioxidant. Due to this property, it fights free radicals in the system and therefore protects the system against inflammation and degenerative changes. Especially bones and teeth. Be cautious to not give an overdose of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is fat soluble and excess of it can lead to hypervitaminosis A. Stick to natural sources of this vitamin and switch to supplements only if prescribed by the pediatric dentist. Found in eggs, carrots, fish, sweet potatoes, milk, liver, and colorful vegetables.
  • Vitamin CVitamin C is an amazing antioxidant that’s necessary for optimal gum health. Deficiency of vitamin C can cause bleeding gums and scurvy. Being water soluble, these are considered safe vitamins and you don’t have to stick to a particular dose. The ascorbic acid can however increase acidity in the stomach. That’s the only concern. It’s found in abundance in citrus fruits like grapefruit, lemons, oranges, and unpredictable sources like chili.
  • Vitamin DVitamin D is what leads to absorption of calcium in the intestine. Therefore, in the absence of vitamin D, intake of regular dosage of calcium will be inadequate. Vitamin D is synthesized in our body in the presence of sunlight. Morning and evening times are considered perfect for sunlight exposure to synthesize vitamin D. Apart from that, foods that may restore the depleted reserves of vitamin D are eggs, fish, and dairy products. Given it’s also fat soluble, dosage should be kept within the prescribed limits.
These are the important vitamins for problem free gums and teeth. To avail the best child dentistry services in Mississauga, contact AIMS Dentistry, the most trusted pediatric dentists in town.

Dr Mandeep Sandhu is very professional and a nice person. Her clinic is equipped with the latest technology and hygiene is excellent. Front desk services are super friendly. I would recommend her to anyone who needs dental treatment.
This clinic is top notch, clean, spacious and with the latest technology. But best of all is the gentle and precise dentistry I have ever experienced from a dentist. I have been there four times and have always been very satisfied.
