Unless specifically: Unless specifically advised otherwise, it is permissible to resume normal eating after a few days of good healing. Since you experience diminished swelling, it is best to start taking as nutritious foods as possible. I hope that, by saying "normal food", you have meant clean, well-balanced, fresh food. Make sure to eat high quality fresh food for improved healing. Contact your dentist for more qs.
