What Can I Eat After Tooth Extraction? 7 Tips from Art De Dente Melbourne CBD

by | Jun 25, 2021 | Tooth Extraction

Eating the first meal after tooth extraction may seem an effort, so don’t forget to carefully remove any gauze or cotton at the extraction site.

Gently rinse your mouth to make sure oral hygiene and to prevent any blood from getting mixed with your food.

Foods that can be taken after a tooth extraction procedure must not trigger any pain at the extraction site.

Here’s a list of soft foods to eat after teeth removal to help guide you:

  1. Soup
    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.
  2. Applesauce
    Applesauce is very soft and the perfect temperature for people recovering from tooth surgery.
  3. Yogurt
    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.
  4. Eggs
    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.
  5. Oatmeal
    To avoid irritating your gum, make sure that the oatmeal is lukewarm before you eat it.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
