Calcium and Its Benefits to Oral Health

Posted on 9/5/2022 by Advanced Dental Specialty Group
Calcium and Its Benefits to Oral HealthMost of the calcium in a person's body is required for bone and tooth structure and function. The mineral calcium is the most common in the human body. Calcium strengthens the enamel, which helps teeth fend off degradation and cavities. Our teeth's hard outer layer, called enamel, is gradually worn away by oral bacteria that live there naturally and use the food and liquids we ingest to produce dangerous substances.

Age-related weakening and fault development in enamel allow microorganisms to penetrate the sensitive area of our teeth. Once inside, bacteria have the capacity to lead to cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Calcium can improve dental health by protecting teeth from oral bacteria. Calcium serves as a remineralization agent for healthy enamel, assisting in the restoration of bacterial damage. As a result, just like the bones in the rest of the body, teeth develop stronger and more durable with increased calcium intake.

Maintaining Oral health

In order to maintain good oral health, one should practice good self-care, use fluoride toothpaste, and seek expert assistance. Poor oral health can be caused by bad habits including smoking, eating poorly, and drinking too much alcohol. Social variables also have an effect on dental health.

In general, persons with lower incomes and members of specific racial or ethnic groups experience higher rates of illness. People with disabilities and those who suffer from other medical conditions like diabetes may have poor dental health. Access to dental care for children from low-income families was a subject of discussion. Children with Medicaid and CHIP received more dental care overall but visited the dentist less frequently than children with private insurance, according to a research.

Our dentists promote good dental health. Call our offices at our toll-free lines right away if you require any explanation.
