Sun triggers beautiful, healthy smile
There are many things to smile about when traveling to warmer climates in the winter time.
And extra rays of sunshine are one of things to smile about.
Did you know that the ultraviolet rays from the sun trigger the production of vitamin D in the skin?
Vitamin D has limited availability, and can be obtained only through select foods, from sunshine, and through supplementation.
By now, you probably know that vitamin D helps build strong bones and prevent bone-related injuries later in life.
But the vitamin is also essential for healthy teeth.
Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and absorption of calcium is necessary to develop and maintain healthy teeth and bones.
Brushing, flossing and regular visits with a dentist are other ways to keep your smile bright and healthy.
