No Statistically Significant Association Found Between Vitamin D Levels and Caries


A cross-sectional study published in BMC Public Health investigated the potential links between serum vitamin D levels, measured by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry, and oral health outcomes in 7- to 9-year-old Norwegian children. The research focused on dental caries and molar incisor hypomineralization. While a descriptive analysis suggested higher prevalence and affected teeth in children with insufficient vitamin D levels, the adjusted analysis did not reveal statistically significant associations between vitamin D status and the prevalence or number of teeth affected by caries or molar incisor hypomineralization. The study emphasized the need for large prospective studies with multiple serum vitamin D measurements and oral examinations throughout childhood to better understand the relationship between vitamin D and oral health in children.
