Posted on 11/25/2018 by Dr McMurray
Make Sure to Drink Lots of Milk After Oral Surgery to Increase Your Body's CalciumMaking sure to drink lots of milk is important in general, but once you have oral surgery, it can provide even more benefits to your body. While milk itself is not the important part, the vitamins and minerals found in the milk are what keeps the bones and teeth in a body strong.

It is important that the person get these vitamins and nutrients after oral surgery so that they keep their bodies and teeth stronger than ever. Learn why a healthy glass or two of milk a day is essential for a healthier lifestyle overall.

Health Benefits of Milk

Milk is full of calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus. These are all important for bones and healthier teeth overall. These nutrients can also help the person's gums and not just the teeth. The calcium can make jaw bones stronger and when the jawbone is strong, it is better able to hold onto the teeth in the gums. Calcium needs phosphorus in order to maintain its benefits. The two go hand in hand when it comes to oral health.

Those that would prefer not to drink milk have other ways to get the calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus that they need, such as taking supplements for these items. They can also find foods that are rich in these nutrients, such as yogurts or cheese. There are many ways to get the nutrition that is needed when a patient would like a stronger, healthier smile.
