Nutritional considerations are most critical during growth and development of Individuals because of increased dietary requirements during this period. Those who seek orthodontic treatment avoid many types of food, especially fruits, raw vegetables, and other hard and tough foods because of pressure sensitivity. This results in deficiency of proteins and other key nutrients. Also mouth is portal for entry of food into the body, thus surgery of these structures may result in impaired food intake and eventually in nutrient deficiency. In both instances special dietary concern and guidelines are mandatory for the success of the treatment and overall wellbeing of the patient. This paper presents an overview of the relation between diet and orthodontic treatment including orthognathic surgeries.
