If you’re facing tooth extraction, you have two questions on your mind.

Most people wonder how much will this hurt? The next question is usually, what can I eat after a tooth extraction?

We’ll talk about discomfort on another day, but for now, let’s talk about aftercare food!

Your Glen Waverley dentist won’t suggest chips and salsa or a juicy cheeseburger.

Don’t avoid the dentist because of that!

Instead, read our short guide to 7 food choices for after-extraction care.

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.
