What Can I Eat After Tooth Extraction? 7 Tips from Captivate Dental
Has your dentist informed you that you need to undergo tooth extraction?
The process will vary depending on several factors, including which tooth is being removed, its position in the mouth, and if it is impacted or erupted.
Especially if the tooth is impacted, you will need to pay attention to what you eat after the procedure to ensure that the wound heals well.
Scroll down to learn what to eat after tooth extraction.
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.
