Vitamin D can be a key contributor to preventing cavities in your child’s teeth!
Vitamin D helps to prevent cavities by producing antimicrobial proteins to help fight off bacteria. It has been shown that sunlight, a key factor in making Vitamin D, can reduce cavities by 74% in children! It was also shown that consuming Vitamin D in milk and other dairy was able to reduce cavities by 49%! As always, with proper brushing and flossing, this number can be much, much lower!
