In the chronic illness community, many patients struggle with dental health issues. I have had my fair share of dental issues, including recurrent cavitation infections and three cavitation surgeries over the past six years. Throughout my healing journey, I’ve learned just how great an impact dental infections and dental health can have on whole-body well being. Thanks to my personal health journey and my clinical nutrition experience, I’ve developed a deep understanding of the impact of nutrition on dental health and post-dental surgery outcomes. In this article, you’ll learn how to use nutrition to optimize your healing outcomes after dental procedures such as cavitation surgery, and how to eat to support your long-term dental health.
