Once I had a problem with my teeth and gums. I had some deep pockets and a host of other problems. The dentist wanted to do a deep scaling and set an appointment 3 months later to do minor gum surgery. I went home and every day and night I took vitamin D, brushed and flossed. 3 months later, my dentist was so surprised that I was able to avoid gum surgery.
