Vitamin C May Speed Surgical Recovery
At Sedaros Oral Surgery, we ensure that you’re prepared for your procedure by knowing what to expect both in the office and when you return home. Some oral surgery procedures have a simple recovery period while other surgeries require more time for healing. In all cases, however, it may be wise to load up on Vitamin C in the weeks leading up to your procedure to cut healing time.
The energy needed for tissue regeneration is supplied by carbohydrates, fat, and protein. Along with vitamin C, vitamins A, E, B, K and D are all integral to the healing process and a speedier recovery time. A person with adequate dietary intake of these elements is likely to recover more quickly than someone who is not as nutritionally prepared.
If you’re planning to see your Melbourne oral surgery associates soon, start taking your multivitamin and a boost of vitamin C now. The extra nutrition power may just mean faster healing and an easier recovery!
