ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the effects of scurvy on tooth preservation. Scurvy has been shown to cause rapid metabolism of calcium in the body, leading to the loss of cementum in the teeth. As teeth lose cementum, they begin to fall out. Because scurvy has been shown to be related to diet, it is asserted that diets rich in antiscorbutics may preserve teeth.
