Posted on 3/15/2019 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Which Vitamins Should You Try and Get from Food During Oral Surgery Recovery?A healthy diet gives you the vitamins and mineral that you need to stay healthy. There are some times in your life where it is important to make sure you are getting plenty of vitamins and minerals because of something your body is going through.

The time after oral surgery is one of the times to think about the vitamins and minerals entering your body. By eating certain foods, you can not only ensure a pain free recovery, you can also give your body the vitamins and mineral it needs for a speedy recovery.

Getting the Right Vitamins

There are several ways to get the vitamins your body craves for oral surgery recovery. While you can turn to pills or liquids, there are also plenty of soft foods that can contain the combination of vitamins you need. Consider looking for food with these vitamins.

•  Vitamin C - This vitamin is a powerful tool for a healthy body. After oral surgery, it can help a wound heal as much as 50% faster.
•  B-Complex - One factor that can slow down your recovery is stress. B-complex vitamins can help reduce the stress the body is under after oral surgery.
•  Vitamin A - This helps with skin healing and collagen production.
•  Zinc - Zinc helps with skin and mucosal membranes.
•  Calcium - This helps build bones and is especially helpful for anyone that underwent bone graft surgery.
•  Vitamin K - This helps form blood clots.

How to Get Vitamins in Food

There are plenty of soft foods and drinks that contain the vitamins your body needs during oral surgery recovery. You can also create smoothies, shakes or blended drinks that contain food with lots of vitamins. It is also possible to take liquid supplements if you cannot get the vitamins through food.

Good nutrition is important both before and after oral surgery. Getting plenty of vitamins and minerals through food can help not only your oral health, but your overall health. It is something everyone needs to know about.
