The importance of bone health for our teeth
by: Dental Assistant Team

Our teeth are supported by bones, so it is very important to maintain healthy strong bones to contribute to our dental health.

Calcium, vitamin K, and vitamin D are one of the essential building blocks of healthy bones. You can easily supply your body with calcium and vitamins though a proper diet.

When we mention calcium most people immediately think milk, cheese and other dairy products. With a large portion of the American population having some level of lactose intolerance, the prospect of eating dairy product is less than attractive to many. What a lot of people are not aware of is that calcium is actually found in may non-dairy products such as: salmon, sardines, nuts, spinach, broccoli, collards greens, watercress, Chinese cabbage, tofu, arugula, kale (which also is high in vitamin K), and many other non-dairy foods.

Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, or consume dairy product, there are many different ways to get your daily dose of calcium through food.

Supplements are also a good additional source of calcium and vitamins in addition to your leafy greens. The recommended daily calcium intake for a healthy adult is 1000 mg/day.

Another information that a lot of people are unaware of is that some foods actually act as calcium inhibitors. These foods include: coffee, soft drinks, refined sugar, alcohol, tobacco, as well as excess salt. All of these can minimize the absorption of calcium and therefore should be consumed in moderation.

As you age your doctor will probably recommend that your increase your calcium intake, especially if you area a post-menopausal woman. Other categories of people who doctors usually recommend eat more calcium are children during growth, adolescents and pregnant women.
