Some babies may be starting in a trail position with regards to their dental health.
A Canadian study indicates that low levels of vitamin D in pregnant women may increase the possibility of their children developing cavities.
The lack of vitamin D may result in problems with enamel, which directly results in an increase in cavity risk. Enamel starts to form when the fetus is in the womb and a deficiency of vitamin D during pregnancy can certainly have an adverse impact on a baby’s oral health before the teeth begin to erupt.
