Dental Care for Vegetarians

Dental Care for VegetariansVegetarian diets can be a great alternative to the traditionally fatty American diet. Most vegetarians enjoy well-rounded diets with plenty of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. However, some may be lacking in crucial nutrients. According to Dr. Mirani, dentist in Beverly Hills, some of these nutrients can mean the difference between a healthy, glowing smile and serious dental health problems.

Vitamin D and Calcium

These nutrients are commonly found in milk and other dairy products and are essential for building strong teeth and healthy bone tissue. If you have eliminated dairy from your diet, look for almond, soy or rice milk that has been fortified with both vitamin D and calcium. Dark green, leafy vegetables and almonds can also be good sources of calcium while a few minutes of sunshine can help your body produce more vitamin D naturally.

B Vitamins

B vitamins are essential for gum health. Riboflavin and vitamin B12 are most commonly found in foods of animal origin. However, yeast spreads and fortified foods can be good sources of vitamin B12 while riboflavin, or vitamin B2, can be found in fortified grains, asparagus, broccoli, lima beans and molasses.

If you adhere to a strict vegetarian diet, talking to a nutritionist about your own unique dietary needs can ensure you are getting all the nutrients you need for health. Dr. Mirani, expert in porcelain crowns in Beverly Hills can also recommend foods and beverages that can help you meet your recommended daily allowance of smile-healthy nutrients.
