|Soft Food After Wisdom Teeth Extraction|
|As you probably know, wisdom teeth are often removed because of impaction or pain produced by crowding. For some people wisdom teeth able to come in without any complication, for many others surgical removal of the wisdom teeth are required. After any surgical procedures there are special instructions that should be followed for health reasons and most favorable healing; wisdom teeth removal is no exception to this rule. As this surgery is done in the mouth it should come as natural that eating can be complicated for the first few days after the teeth are removed.|
Some people decide to be excessively cautious with their choices of foods and try to live on ice chips, milk shakes, pudding and jell-o. This type of diet is not only going to quickly become boring, but it won't present your body with the nutrition you need to cure from your surgical procedure and recover to your normal condition as quickly as you should. That’s why, at the same time as you will want to be careful of your food choices for the first week you still want to have the nutrients your body requires. In order to perform this, make your choices watchfully from each food group. In any case, do not choose foods that will require you to suck or slurp in order not to cause dry socket. Besides, extremely acidic food can be a problem as well. Citric acid is hard on the mouth and especially the gums. Reject this type of food for the period of two weeks.
You have to know that protein is very important for the body to cure itself. You can get protein from eating meat, lentils, beans, brown rice and nuts. Since your mouth is going to be aching you won't want to eat meat because you will have complexity chewing. Begin with creamy peanut butter on soft bread, or beans. Refried beans are excellent with flour tortillas and a bowl of beans makes a great side dish. For the first week you might want to consume beans and brown rice as your protein sources. Besides, beans are great in soups.
Vegetables are high in vitamin, that’s why they should be included in your diet as well. Besides, when you cook your vegetables they are softer and easier to chew. Such dishes as cooked carrots, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and other soft cooked vegetables can be eaten without creating discomfort or harm to your surgical site.
As for the fruits – they are another significant part of your diet. You can safely eat applesauce and other fruit purees. Eating these and drinking fruit juices can assist you in getting your daily requirements of fruits.
Dairy is the group of products that many people are inclined to cover with ice-cream and pudding. In actual fact, these aren't the best choices you can make although they are easy to influence after you have an extraction performed. In reality, better choices are cottage cheese and milk. String cheese (or mozzarella) is another food choice that is high in calcium and protein. Besides, it is easy to chew. Yogurt can be helpful in maintaining your bacteria balance right in your body if you are on antibiotics; moreover, it is high in protein and calcium and usually comes with a bit of fruit as well.
You have to realize that choosing foods from all of the food groups is significant. Breads and grains might not be as simple during the first day or two but breads and cereals as well as soft pastas are not that complicated to eat after having teeth removed. Begin with soft foods and work your way up as your body allows. It is apparently not a good idea to order a bacon and pineapple pizza in a couple hours after the surgery but if you feel able this is an acceptable food as well. If you want your recovery period to be shortened eat soft foods for the first two to three days and work into your usual diet as you are able.
