What are good food to eat after getting teeth pulled??

My daughter is having 4 teeth removed tomorrow and I have NO idea what she can eat until she is healed. Someone said no dairy, someone said nothing that can get stuck in the stitches another said no soup of any kind. She is having her front top 4 teeth removed and maybe one more (which is in the back). I want to go shopping today and pick things up so I can be ready and not drag her out to the store all sore and cranky.

  • My son had 4 teeth pulled last week and for the first 3 days he ate soft foods...soup, noodles, jello pudding, etc. He drank milk. The only thing he could do was drink through a straw. He had to rinse his mouth out after eating to make sure no foods were stuck in the holes. Otherwise, anything soft is ok. After 3 days, he was able to eat anything as long as he rinsed out his mouth. The reason for soft foods and no staws is that if dry socket is going to happen, it will in the first three days. He also ate pancakes, bread, mashed potatoes.

  • Pudding, soup, jello. Anything real soft. Don't let her drink through a straw ( I'm sure the doc will tell you that) and nothing that will stick to her teeth or anything to hard or tough like meat or candy. You could get her ice cream to. The doctor should give you a list on what she should not have but when my DD had to have teeth pulled like that that is the kind of foods I feed her. My DD was 3 when her teeth were pulled because she had some kind of disease in her teeth ( We are hoping that it will not go to her adult teeth).

  • sometimes eating dairy after having teeth worked on can make their stomach acidy food.tomato soup is a big no no.but lots of cool,soft food is easy to handle.
