Quick Tip: Vitamin C Weakens Tooth Enamel and Other Facts the Dental Experts Do Not Know

Written by Print  E-mail
Citrus toothpaste by Green People will damage tooth enamel.

We encourage daily supplementation of vitamin C for everyone. It protects against everything from sudden infant death syndrome (S.I.D.S) to scurvy, heart disease, and in some cases, cancer. Two-time Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, recommended a whopping 3 grams of vitamin C every day for the average healthy male, and 6 grams for those at risk of heart disease. There are many methods of vitamin C supplementation, in the form of capsules, powders and syrups. For decades, parents have been providing their children with chewable vitamin C pills.

Vitamin C is destructive to tooth enamel, so chewable pills may lead to increased cavities, particularly in those who are lacking minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin C should never be taken in a manner which leaves residues of it on the teeth for an extended time. Some well-intentioned toothpaste manufacturers have misguidedly added vitamin C or "citrus" to their formulas, without realizing the dental problems that this presents. Similarly, some alternative medicine sites on the Internet recommend cleaning the teeth with lemon-based solutions. Citrus acids have the tendency to make the teeth feel clean. This occurs partly because the acid strips the teeth of everything, including the minerals bonding with them. It can cause long-term enamel damage; especially when it is combined with abrasives or stiff bristle brushes.

Vitamin C when taken internally actually strengthens teeth, and the rest of the body. However, it should never be kept in direct contact with the teeth. We strongly recommend for those who are brushing their teeth with citrus formulas to discontinue immediately. Fluoride-free toothpastes which contain calcium carbonate are ideal for long-term dental health and for tooth whiteness. Toothpastes containing phosphorus (phosphates) are even better.

Tooth Nutrients

Those who suddenly start experiencing tooth decay should know that it is often a symptom of a phosphorus deficiency. It is a common problem for vegetarians. Phosphorus is best obtained through meats, fish, and dairy products. It is in seeds and some nuts, but not in sufficient quantities. Fructose causes a decrease in phosphorus, which is one reason why sugar seems to cause cavities. Technically, sugars and carbohydrates can be harmful too, but the greatest factor is the connection between phosphorus depletion and the intake of fructose.

Those suffering from periodontal diseases such as gingivitis should look in the direction of CoQ10. Gingivitis sufferers are invariably deficient in co-enzyme Q10. It has shown good success with topical application, so mouth rinses are now available with this ingredient. In addition, CoQ10 is created by the body during exercise. Chlorophyll can also reverse gum disease, and it was once an ingredient of popular toothpastes.

    Hey John;

    In the article, I was actually referring to vitamin C combined with abrasives, such as the lemon and salt combinations found throughout the web, or even just vitamin C "enhanced" toothpaste combined with tooth brush bristles.

    All toothpastes are slightly abrasive, but the best only contain extremely fine abrasive particles. I honestly can't tell you if baking soda is okay in the long term. I know that it should be okay once in a while, but I'm not sure of the effect of the abrasion on the teeth if used every day. I can tell you that adding calcium carbonate (chalk) to your homemade mixture would be very wise. It both strengthens and whitens the teeth simultaneously.

    Thanks for the information on Vit C and toothpaste. Do you have any recipes for making my own toothpaste. I've been exploring using coconut oil and baking soda, but you mention avoiding anything abrasive so I'm questioning that now. Any ideas?

  • Peggy  - Toothpaste

    I found after several months of using baking soda that it was very damaging to my gums. Once I stopped using it, my gums grew back and were quite healthy. I now use coconut oil with very finely ground sea salt.

  • Sai Kit

    I was just chewing a gum and suddenly a sharp pain shot through when the part of the teeth bite the gum.

    Is there any way to reverse cavity if that pain was a crack of cavity?

    Can consuming more Phosphorus cause the crack or cavity to restore? Can teeth heal themselve?
