Soft diet help?

Forgive me if I'm not making much sense. I just had a couple teeth pulled and am on a soft diet for a couple days. So, I need suggestions on what I can eat.

I have applesauce, pudding, and Slim fast.

What else can I eat?

  • Thank you!! My fiance just got half his mouth extracted! Following this!

    In the house I have pumpkin soup, yogurt, applesauce and I have made banana smoothies.

    I have zero idea what I am going to feed him!

  • Of all the suggestions you've had, mashed potatoes and soup were the only ones I actually tolerated after I had a tooth pulled. Sweet turned my stomach, either because of the pain or the drugs, not sure which.

  • Pumpkin, oatmeal, nd yams are also good choices.

  • Mashed potatoes warm but not hot, soup again warm but not hot, custards and bread puddings. Anything you do not have to chew.
    You can also use the replacement meals that you mix with milk or a smoothie. You definitely do not want anything that is hot and cold isn't that great either. You have my sympathies but it will be better before you know it.
    If they did not tell you, you might want to dampen a tea bag and place it over the extraction site(s) and put pressure just to hold in place...AFTER the bleeding has pretty much stopped. This with toughen and deaden the tissues and promote healing because of the tannic acid.

  • Campbells noodle soups are good. The vegetables and stuff in them are so smushy there's no chewing required.

  • When Hubby had his wisdom teeth out, he could eat, mac & cheese, oatmeal, cream of wheat & mashed potatoes. Popsicles, ice cream or sherbet & cooled pudding can help too.

  • Oatmeal, mashed potatoes, if you overcook it slightly most noodles and pasta would probably be okay. Soups, scrambled eggs might be okay, too.
