As your holistic and biological dentist in Wilmington, we wanted to talk to you about vitamins and supplements. We get a lot of questions from patients about how they can improve their diet and nutritional intake. Our dentists and team even go one step further, providing counseling that’s tailored to your individual needs. Along with your primary care doctor, we can help recommend vitamins and supplements that will best boost your lifestyle. You can also talk to us about partnering with one of our trusted integrative health specialists such as:

  • Chiropractors
  • Acupuncturists
  • Nutritionists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Personal Trainers

No matter where you’re at in your health journey, we want to help you make the most out of life while also boosting your smile health.

What Are the Vitamins I Need to Know About

These nutrients can be found in most foods, but they are also available at your local pharmacy in supplement form. Here are a few that should be on your radar:

  • Vitamin D3  – Did you know that this vitamin is actually a hormone? Most of us are lacking this vitamin which is helpful at protecting our skin from harmful UV rays from the sun. It also works well to help your body fight infections, build strong bones, and protects your heart from disease.
  • Vitamin C – As your holistic and biological dentists in Wilmington, we’re able to tell if you have a vitamin C deficiency by looking at your oral health. It’s important to keep normal vitamin C levels to help your body produce more collagen, burn fat, boost immunity, and heal wounds.
  • Vitamin B12 – When you have lower levels of this vitamin, you could be putting yourself at a higher risk for developing tooth decay and gum disease. B12 shots or tablets are also beneficial for improving your overall wellbeing with additional benefits for your heart, hair, and skin.
