If you are planning a tooth extraction, plan ahead for your meals. You’ll be pretty sore and uncomfortable. Avoid things like spicy food or anything that can get stuck in the wound, like seeds, grains, and crumbly food.
Avoid anything chewy partly because you will be numb for a while and partly because you won’t feel like chewing anything.
Alcohol will irritate the wound and may mix badly with your pain relievers. Also avoid using a straw.
Here are some foods to eat that will help you heal after your surgery. Check out some of these tasty options!
