After extracting your wisdom teeth, it is important to ensure you are getting the right nutrition. Following a soft food diet for a few days postoperatively will minimize the risk of complications and aid in the healing process. Good examples of soft foods include pasta, mashed potatoes, soup, and scrambled eggs. You want to avoid hot liquids and hard foods as this can disturb the extraction sites. Eating frequent light meals will help you feel better, have less discomfort and more strength.
