A review of previous existing studies shows that vitamin D may help prevent dental caries, or tooth decay. The clinical trial which were reviewed were conducted in the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Austria, New Zealand and Sweden and spanned from 1920s to the 1980s, on approximately 3,000 children and young adults. These researches showed that vitamin D was associated with an approximately 50 percent reduction in the incidence of tooth decay.

Dr. Michael Hollick, professor of medicine at the Boston University Medical Center, said that "children who are vitamin D deficient have poor and delayed teeth eruption and are prone to dental caries."
