Research found that vitamins have a role in oral health . A double blind study at Loma Linda shown a reduction of pocket depth, bleeding, and plaque when taking a vitamin called Periotherapy(www.pharmaden.net). This tells me that vitamins, especially prescription grade vitamins, designed for improved absorption, are a piece of the puzzle in maintaining good oral and gum health. However you cannot depend on vitamins to be the cure. Unless the plaque and tater are professionally cleaned off of your teeth and the plaque removed daily oral health will never be achieved. On the other hand removing the plaque will not guarantee heath without the tissues getting the right nutrients.
