What does the science say about sunshine’s effect on your smile?

Experts say that calcium and vitamin D are both vital to your oral health, and the best source of Vitamin D is the sun!

While you don’t want too much of a good thing, a little time outdoors soaking up some rays may give you enough exposure to boost your body’s vitamin D and its bone-strengthening power, which promotes a healthy jaw and strong teeth.

It could also help prevent periodontal disease because vitamin D plays an important role in regulating inflammation in the body, including inside your mouth.
