Delicious Foods You Can Eat After Wisdom Teeth Removal, Anchorage, Alaska

Although wisdom teeth removal can be a surprisingly comfortable and easy procedure, after the work is done, you’ll generally be advised to avoid certain foods for a few days. At Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, AK, a skilled dentist will let you know which foods you can and can’t eat as you heal from the surgery. Their emphasis on offering quality family dentistry to patients throughout the region includes making sure all patients understand what they can do to get the best results after they leave the office.

After a wisdom teeth removal operation, the following foods offer good ways to get the nutrition you need without harming your teeth:

  • Wisdom-Teeth-Removal-Anchorage-AKSoups: Smooth soups are a great meal for anyone who has recently had their wisdom teeth removed. They require very little chewing, yet tend to boast a wide range of quality ingredients to satisfy your appetite and dietary needs.
  • Smoothies: After wisdom teeth removal, you can still get a healthy dose of fruits and vegetables by drinking smoothies. Grab a blender, look up some recipes, and create concoctions that not only support your health but also taste great.
  • Yogurt: If you want to be sure you’re getting enough protein after having your wisdom teeth removed, the dentist may recommend yogurt. Ice cream is less healthy but an option you also might consider.
  • Pasta: If you’re craving a slightly more filling meal, most pastas are completely safe to eat after the operation, so long as you cook them a little while longer than usual to make them softer.

If you have any questions about what you can eat after having your wisdom teeth removed, the experts at Family First Dentistry in Anchorage will be happy to answer them. They strive to not only keep patients healthy but informed as well. Visit them online to learn more about their services or call (907) 562-2820.
