  • Soft foods, soups, breads that are soft. :) It depends on where it's located and how many are pulled to. If you can eat on one side without issues then you could try harder foods.

    I know when I got my 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed I lived off soup and sherbert lol

  • It's just one tooth on my right side the very last one and it was a broken tooth

  • then try softer foods and see what you are comfy with :) a pasta would probably be ok, etc. You will probably want to gurgle with salt water after eating, to keep it clean :)
