What to Eat Immediately After the Surgery

In the first 24 hours after your surgery, you shouldn't eat or drink anything hot as it can lead to or worsen existing bleeding.
Also, avoid eating anything that requires chewing. Liquid foods such as soups and yogurt are perfect.

What to Eat 24 – 72 Hours After the Surgery

At this stage, you can eat soft foods instead of only liquid foods. Ripe bananas, rice pudding, scrambled eggs, and tinned tuna mixed with salad cream or mayonnaise is perfect. However, you still need to be careful with what you eat. This is because foods such as raspberry jam may contain seeds that could get lodged inside a tooth socket or wound.

What to Eat 3 Days – 1 Week After the Surgery

By this time, you can eat foods that require a little chewing such as baked beans, fish, well-cooked vegetables, cake, brownies, etc. Avoid eating foods that require too much chewing such as nuts, or anything with pointed edges that can damage the healing wound.

What to Eat 1 Week After the Surgery
