There is a synergistic relationship between nutrition, oral health, and disease. Nutrient deficiency may result in oral symptomatology. Oral conditions and systemic diseases associated with oral manifestations may lead to nutrient deficiencies as a consequence of compromised mastication and swallowing, pain, or discomfort. Health professionals must recognize the manifestations of these deficiencies, consider their causes and provide early treatment to prevent further compromise in nutrition status and to promote optimal nutrition, oral and overall health.
