How long until I can eat after tooth extraction?

Your Bonita Springs dentist recommends tooth extraction for various reasons. For example, it could be that you have a tooth broken below the gumline or one that is too damaged to save through crowning. In this case, we will talk to you about tooth replacement.

Extraction is sometimes necessary before orthodontics and dentures or due to wisdom tooth impaction.

No matter why you need a tooth extraction, you can count on an image-guided and gentle treatment from our team. We will always ensure the treatment area is numb and you feel relaxed.

Following a dental extraction, your dentist supplies aftercare instructions, including information unique to your case. These instructions include information about eating and drinking. Generally, you’ll want to avoid eating or drinking anything hot until the anesthesia wears off. Then, for a day or two, we recommend a soft diet that can include foods like:

  • Mashed potatoes
  • Pureed foods
  • Baby foods
  • Yogurt
  • Creamy soups
  • Pudding

You should also avoid chewing at the extraction site for a few days following treatment.
