Getting the (Vitamin) D

After a dental surgery, your body relies on its reserves of vitamins and minerals, which it sends alongside more blood to close the wound. Vitamin D is one of those bodily nourishments that your wound needs. Incidentally, it is also the most important mineral for your bones. Whether in growing, re-growing or integrating new parts, Vitamin D is key.

Not only will it ensure that your bone adapts to your implant, but also that your bones are strong enough to fuse itself to the metal. Furthermore, your body needs calcium for other purposes, reinforcing the need to have more than adequate of the mineral each day.
