Vitamin D during pregnancy may lower infant caries risk
from Dental Tribune International
Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with bone defects by a number of studies. New research from Japan has now provided additional evidence that it may also be involved in the development of tooth decay. In a study of 1,210 Japanese mother-child pairs, scientists found that dental caries was less prevalent in children whose mothers had a higher vitamin D intake during pregnancy.
