Key Nutrients To Good Oral Health

Vitamin C:

Aids in the formation of collagen, maintains connective tissue and fights infection. Is important for the growth and repair of tissue cells, blood vessels, bones and teeth and helps to heal wounds and bleeding gums. It accelerates healing after surgery; helps prevent receding gums and gingival inflammation. Vitamin C may also reduce the risk of mouth cancer.


Helps maintain healthy bones and teeth. Low calcium intake causes bone loss from the jawbone and accelerates periodontal disease.

Vitamin D:

Essential for the formation of strong bones and teeth. Deficiencies can lead to osteoporosis, soft bones and teeth, tooth decay and gum disease.


Encourages calcium formation for bones and teeth and promotes tooth development. Deficiencies can lead to bone disease and tooth and gums disorders.


Promotes bone development and enhances the effect of vitamin C. Deficiencies can cause calcium resorption, tooth decay and soft bones.


Regulates the inflammatory process; aids in healing wounds and fights bad breath. Deficiencies can lead to poor healing, susceptibility to infection and loss of taste.

Vitamin K:

Aids calcium absorption in the bones.

Vitamin E:

Supplies oxygen to oral tissues; prevents and dissolves blood clots and promotes healing.

Vitamin A:

Strengthens bones; helps with the formation and maintenance of teeth and healthy gums. Beta-carotene studies show it may reduce the risk of oral cancer; help the healing process; stimulate our body's defense system and guard against infection.


Combined with vitamin E, it reinforces tissue elasticity; increases resistance to infection and acts as an antioxidant.
