oral tissue health

Oral Tissue Health

Adequate levels of vitamin B12 are
important for maintaining the health of oral tissues, including the gums, tongue, and oral mucosa. Deficiencies in B12 can lead to oral symptoms such as sore or swollen gums, tongue inflammation, and oral ulcers.

Reduction in Oral Inflammation

Reduction in Oral Inflammation

Vitamin B12’s involvement in red blood cell formation and its role in reducing inflammation in the body can indirectly benefit oral health by supporting the health of the gums. Inflammation in the gums is a common factor in gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis.

Healing immune response

Immune Response

Vitamin B12 plays a role in cell division and tissue repair, which can contribute to the healing of oral wounds and lesions. It also supports the immune system, helping the body fight off infections that can affect oral health.

Energy levels dental vitamins

Energy Levels

Vitamin B12 is essential for energy production and maintaining vitality. Having sufficient energy can help individuals maintain good oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing and flossing, which are important for preventing dental diseases.

diet and nutritional factors

Diet and Nutritional Factors

A balanced diet rich in vitamins, including B12, supports overall health and strengthens the body’s ability to fight infections and diseases. Supplementation with B12 can contribute to better oral health.

Vitamin C

 

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, plays a role in maintaining oral health. It supports the health of gums by promoting collagen production, which helps in wound healing and maintaining the integrity of gum tissues. Adequate vitamin C intake is associated with a reduced risk of gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis). It also has antioxidant properties that can help protect oral tissues from damage caused by free radicals.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea extract has been investigated for its potential dental benefits due to its rich content of bioactive compounds, including polyphenols and catechins. Some of the potential dental benefits of green tea extract include:
