Want to Keep Your Teeth? Get Your Vitamin D!

Couple Outside

Since you were a child, you’ve probably heard about the importance of calcium for strong bones and teeth. However, did you know that Vitamin D also plays a key role. In fact, your efforts to get enough calcium in your body are all in vain if you don’t also consume Vitamin D. These two nutrients work hand in hand.

The Role of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is known for helping calcium get absorbed properly. Without Vitamin D, your body can struggle to break down calcium, which renders it inefficient for your body to use for stronger bones and teeth. When adding Vitamin D, however, the process of calcium breakdown and absorption is smooth and easy. For this reason, both calcium and vitamin D have been proven to help prevent bone loss throughout the body. When translating these benefits for your oral health, this means lower rates of tooth loss!

Are You Getting Enough Vitamin D?

According to recent studies, nearly 42% of the US population is deficient in Vitamin D! Are you among those who are struggling to meet the daily recommendations for this Vitamin?

The American Dietetic Associations’ daily value for both calcium and vitamin D include the following:

  • 2,500 mg/day of calcium
  • 1,000 units/day of vitamin D

How to Get More Vitamin D

Don’t worry. Adding Vitamin D to your daily consumption isn’t difficult. There are plenty of natural ways to meet the daily values, such as:

  • Dairy products (milk, cheese, etc)
  • Soy and rice drinks
  • Salmon and other fatty fish
  • Almonds
  • Dark green leafy vegetables

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we recognize the strong link between nutritional health and oral health. To help you avoid the need for dental implants or other forms of teeth replacement, we encourage you to combine Vitamin D with your calcium intake. Keeping your natural teeth is always our top priority!

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
