Oro-facial pain (OFP) is known to exert profound impacts on quality of life including functionally and psychosocially mediated changes in dietary intake and thereby nutrition. This commentary explores the evidence base available on chronic oro-facial pain, diet and nutrition and discusses current dietary guidance for individuals with chronic OFP; potential impact of chronic OFP on eating and nutritional status; impact of nutritional status on pathophysiology of chronic OFP; and potential role of nutrition in the management of chronic OFP.
