our nutritional habits have a tremendous effect on the health of your teeth. For example, studies have shown that calcium and vitamin D work together to actually prevent bone loss! Where can you get these essential nutrients? You can get calcium from:
- Dairy products like cheese, milk, and yogurt
- Soy beans
- Calcium-fortified orange juice and other breakfast cereals
As for vitamin D, this can be found in:
- Fish like tuna or salmon
- Vitamin D-fortified foods or beverages like milk, orange juice, and cereals
We’re also sharing a video by Delta Dental that discusses why vitamin D and calcium are so good for your teeth.
