What Can I Eat After Tooth Extraction? 7 Tips from Warrnambool Dental
Getting a tooth extracted means you’ll have a tender wound in your mouth for at least a week.
It might seem daunting to think of foods that won’t hurt to eat or irritate the wound, but it’s easier than you may think.
The idea is to get the nutrients you need with as little chewing as possible.
Knowing what foods to avoid is also key to ensure your gums heal quickly and without complications.
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.
