Low Vitamin D During Pregnancy May Predict Cavities for Kids

Hello lady. I am interested in this question. Previous studies have shown that a vitamin D deficiency among mothers can lead to defects in the enamel of the teeth of their babies that have already begun to develop in the womb and that these defects can increase the risk of tooth decay.
How to find out whether low levels of vitamin D in mothers during pregnancy will also translate into higher rates of the cavity for their babies
According to data published in pediatrics, levels of prenatal vitamin D were significantly lower in women who had cavities in offspring than in women who had no cavities in babies.
In fact, there was a direct link between low levels of vitamin D in mothers and a large number of cavities in their babies.
In addition to low levels of vitamin D in mothers, defects in tooth enamel have also been associated with cavities in children.
My doctor believes that improving nutrition during the formation of teeth and early childhood can reduce the risk of cavities. He says that preventive efforts should begin during pregnancy, supporting the mother's nutrition, either by improving the intake of food, or with the addition of vitamin D.
Who had this situation? Who will help with advice?
