The dental caries in children may be associated with vitamin D

To prevent caries regular brushing is insufficient. According to RBC, according to the recommendations of scientists at the University of Washington is also needed vitamin D. 24 clinical trials conducted from 1920 to 1980 in countries such as the United States, UK, Canada, Austria, New Zealand and Sweden, have confirmed the benefits of the vitamin.

Participants in these studies were 3,000 children aged 2 to 16 years. It was found that vitamin D contributes to reducing by 50% the risk of caries. As told to Dr. Philip Jewell, doctors have long known of the property of the vitamin to strengthen the bones. But how to prevent caries, almost no one spoke. Now managed to prove that due to the vitamin improves the mineralization of teeth and bones.

According to doctors, to increase the concentration of the vitamin in the child's body allows the combination of dietary supplements and fish oil. Children were periodically subjected to UV-irradiation.

According to Michael Holika from Boston University, if children have low vitamin D, not only are they more prone to caries, but also prone to delay in teething.
