What To Eat ?

Eat any nourishing food that can be taken with comfort once the numbness has gone away, but avoid extremely hot foods. It is advisable to confine the first day’s intake to bland liquids, soft or pureed foods (creamed soups, puddings, yogurt, milkshakes, ice cream, Popsicle’s, etc.). Avoid foods like nuts, sunflower seeds, popcorn, etc., that may get lodged in the socket areas. Over the next several days you can progress to solid foods at your own pace. See our” What to eat” section for creative ideas.Email us with your favorite soft cuisine and it may get posted for others to enjoy. It is important not to skip meals! If you take nourishment regularly, you will feel better, regain your strength, have less discomfort and heal faster. If you are diabetic, maintain your normal eating habits as much as possible and follow instructions from us or your physician regarding your insulin schedule.
