Did you just get a tooth extracted, or are you about to get a tooth removed?
Whatever the reason may be, one thing you’ll have to think about when your procedure is over is what you can or can’t eat.
Don’t worry; these aren’t food guidelines and restrictions for the rest of your life.
They’re just in place during your recovery period so that you can heal quickly without any hiccups along the way.
To help make things a bit easier for you, here are some foods that are safe for you to eat after tooth extraction. Also, remember NOT to drink using a straw for at least the first 24 hours.
Here’s a list of soft foods to eat after teeth removal to help guide you:
Pureed vegetable soups are easy on your mouth and teeth because there are no large pieces of vegetable or meat that you would have to chew.
Applesauce is very soft and the perfect temperature for people recovering from tooth surgery.
Yogurt is another great healthy breakfast or snack to have if you get a tooth pulled. Grab plain yogurt that doesn’t have pieces of fruit or granola.
Eggs are a rich source of protein and good for breakfast or dinner when you need to be careful with your teeth and mouth after extraction.
To avoid irritating your gum, make sure that the oatmeal is lukewarm before you eat it.
- Mashed Potatoes
Get a lot of nutrients in only a few bites of mashed potatoes, which you may need if you’re struggling to eat after your dental surgery.
- Cottage Cheese
Cottage cheese is a source of protein that you can eat as a snack, or you can add it to enhance other meals.
