Vitamin C and Periodontal disease

Recent studies have linked low vitamin C with gum disease.

  • low blood levels of vitamin C increases the likelyhood of periodontal disease
  • smokers are more likely to have low levels of vitamin C and periodontal disease. Cigarette smoke has oxidants

Vitamin C is an antioxidant. It is needed to repair connective tissue and accelerate bone regeneration.

Increasing your vitamin C by eating:

  • grapefruit, oranges, kiwi fruit, mango, papaya, strawberry, red pepper, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and cantaloupe.
  • avoid chewable vitamin C, because the acidity may promote the erosion of tooth enamel over time.
