Periodontal Disease and Vitamin D

Article source : The Vitamin D Council? 

A website called  The Vitamin D Council has posted an article about vitamin D's relationship to periodontal disease - which they refer to as PD.   :)  

I thought the article raised a few interesting points.  

They are not saying that sunlight exposure and vitamin d supplementation will reverse gum disease. And that is good because I am quite sure that neither would.    Once the bacterial population gets to a certain level - vitamins are not likely to stop them.  

Instead they are pointing out that people with suspected lower levels of vitamin D are more at risk for contracting gum disease.   This may or may not be true.  I don't necessarily doubt it.   It is an interesting correlation to say the least.

Once you know you have gum disease, you should definitely take action and be under the care of skilled and caring periodontist.   A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in gum health and disease.
A good periodontist will work to help save your teeth.
