National Dairy Month & Tooth Decay

So what does this mean for tooth decay? The coating helps to prevent your teeth from incurring decay. Calcium helps strengthen and repair tooth enamel that has started to dissolve due to acid attacks. If your calcium levels are too low, it can lead to osteoporosis and osteopenia.

Symptoms of Calcium Deficiency

  • Numbness around your mouth
  • Numbness in your hands or feet
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Weak nails
  • Tooth decay
  • Depression
  • Back pain

Best Foods

If you’re looking to add more calcium to your diet, consider purchasing milk, cheese or yogurt. Other dairy foods like brown rice, oranges, cabbage, beans and broccoli are full of calcium. For Vitamin D, get out in the sun! For phosphorous, look at cereals, almonds, meat, eggs, etc.
