How To Plan Your Menu After Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Thomas Plunkett DMD
How To Plan Your Menu After Wisdom Tooth ExtractionIn the days after tooth extraction, eating a diet mainly composed of soft foods will help you feel less agony and recover more quickly. However, given that the foods recommended for you to eat are somewhat different from what you are used to, you could want some guidance on which foods are secure for consumption.

After surgery, you'll need to consume just liquids for roughly two days, such as broth, stewed meats, and noodles. Smoothies, juice, and other drinks count. As you feel more secure about eating, you may advance to soft meals like oatmeal.

A Good Diet Is Essential After Tooth Extraction

Consuming meals that are high in nutrients and nutritious after any operation is essential. Patients who eat foods rich in nutrients have a better chance of recovering rapidly. To help in your rehabilitation after having teeth extracted, it is necessary to keep up a diet that consists of meat, greens, berries, essential fats, and carbohydrates.

In addition, you should avoid chewing around the extraction point for approximately two weeks after the treatment. Doing so might disturb the healing process and cause it to take longer. Following three days, you should be able to start eating your regular meals, but you should avoid foods that are very warm, hot, sour, dense, or crunchy until your gums and jaw are entirely healed.
