Excellent Soft Foods for Post-Dental Extraction Recovery
Information may not be reliable

Tooth extraction, depending upon the reason, can seem like an unpleasant experience. However, people find that they heal relatively quickly.

Tooth extraction, depending upon the reason, can seem like an unpleasant experience. However, people find that they heal relatively quickly. It also depends on which tooth is extracted. For instance, people who have their wisdom teeth extracted have large holes in their gums, and there gums can bleed for quite a while. This is especially true for patients who are on an aspirin regimen or who otherwise have thin blood. Having a tooth extracted in the front of the mouth leaves a smaller hole, and the roots tend to be less deep. These heal quicker. Regardless of which tooth is pulled, it’s essential to not eat foods that are hard or will cause the blood clot in the gums to come loose.

Blood clots that come out of their sockets leave behind something called “dry sockets”. This leaves the inner portion of the gums exposed to air, food and liquids. The problem with this is that the gums can be very sensitive. Also, when a blood clot comes loose from the gums, bone has a harder time forming. When a blood clot is left in the gums, the gums heal faster, and there is less bone-loss.

After dental extractions, it’s important to eat soft foods that will not disturb the blood clot. For instance, eat mashed potatoes, sliced bananas, pudding, yogurt, soup, avocado slices or eggs. Protein is good for healing incisions so eggs are an excellent option. Potatoes and other carbohydrates are excellent for replacing sugar in the body. Bananas are high in potassium. Avocados offer essential good fats. Do not eat soup when it is too hot, although. This can cause the blood clot to come loose. Allow soup to cool down before eating. Also, the mouth will swell somewhat from a tooth extraction. Eating ice cream and sherbet can be helpful in relieving swelling and numbing the pain. It’s also possible to mash up bananas and freeze to make a sweet treat that tastes like ice cream but is without dairy.

Dental extractions in Studio City can help people to improve the condition of their mouth. While people want to avoid food from lodging itself in the gums, it’s important to use warm water to gently swish around the mouth to remove excess food. Removing a tooth can help in several ways. Whatever the need for the tooth extraction, following up with the proper care is important.
