Is Vitamin C Important During Gum Disease Treatment?
Posted on 10/5/2020 by Todd Jorgenson
Is Vitamin C Important During Gum Disease Treatment?It is easy to identify healthy gum. It is usually pink in appearance and moist. No bleeding or pain should happen to the gum when brushing your teeth. A lot of people, however, have been affected by gum disease. It can be in form of gingivitis that is a mild gum disease or periodontitis, which is much worse. This disease occurs as a result of a bacterial build-up on the surface of a tooth. This leads to plaque, which is a tacky substance on which acids and bacteria are trapped in the mouth. These acids and bacteria then cause inflammation, soreness, and bleeding in the lining of the gum. The plaque, if not dealt with on time, can become tartar, which does the same thing as plaque but much harder to deal with. If left untreated, tartar may cause periodontitis that is a very harmful gum disease. Not to worry though. We have the treatment you need for gum diseases. In that treatment, we like to include vitamin C that has proven to be good for gum disease treatment. Here are some important things vitamin C can help with.

It Aids in Protein Synthesis


Protein synthesis like collagen production is very important to our bodies as it builds up healthy tissues in our bodies. This is good for the gum as our teeth need strong and healthy gum. In case there is an insufficient collagen supply in the body, the risk of contracting gum disease becomes higher. This is because the gum will not have enough healthy tissues to support the teeth. We must, therefore, consume a lot of vitamin C to make our gums stronger and healthier.

It Is a Potent Antioxidant


We need antioxidants in the body as they help in the healing of wounds. Vitamin C is a very good antioxidant that can help fight off the gum disease-causing bacteria in the mouth. This will, in turn, keep our gums healthy and free of any harmful infections.

We must take in a lot of vitamin C to keep our gums healthy. In case you have a gum infection, call us today for the best treatment options.
