There are many foods that you can add to your diet or eat regularly to increase the vitamin D that you get. Vitamin D is essential for healthy teeth and gum, as is a well-balanced diet. Having a healthier diet is important for many reasons.

Vitamin D is also found in the UV rays from the sun. Getting outside more often than not is important, not only for your oral health, but your overall health, as well. Sunshine can help to reduce the ill effects that come from removing vitamin D from your diet.
