Eating after tooth extraction can seem like a huge challenge. This may be due to the concern of feeling pain. Eating after tooth extraction is not something you need to worry about. The only thing you need to remember is that eating hard foods can harm you, so you can choose softer foods. If you are undecided about what to eat, Dentist Pertev Kökdemir gave advice on how to eat.
- Our first rule is not to eat anything after the surgical procedure. Water can be drunk if needed. The most important point to be considered is not to irritate the operation area and not to disturb the blood clot formed in the extraction cavity. In addition, you should not eat very hot food. Because heat can cause bleeding.
- A bland, non-spicy diet is recommended for the first few days.
- You can choose a healthy mixture of vegetables and make a thick soup from them. But make sure all parts are thoroughly mashed or drained and at room temperature the first day. Vegetables will help you get the nutrients you need.
- Juices of your favorite fruits are very good options. Drinking something cold will help prevent or reduce swelling after the procedure.
- Eat softer foods and avoid hard foods. Start with softer foods such as cheese or pasta, bread and milk, omelettes that are easy to chew and won't disturb the treatment area.
- Avoid foods that may stick to your existing teeth, such as chewing gum, bon bon candies, and large bites of bread.
- Do not smoke for two days after the procedure.
