What Can I Eat After Tooth Extraction? 7 Tips from Ria Family Dental
Tooth extraction is surely an unpleasant experience, during or after the procedure.
After the procedure, you might have a little blood coming out of the extraction site afterwards. Also, your gums will be very tender for a few weeks.
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.
