Follow instructions: Follow the oral and\or written instructions given to you following the procedure. Anything soft. Pasta, cooked vegetables, fish, chicken, puddings, nutritional drinks, ice cream, etc.

Diet after surgery: After wisdom teeth surgery the swelling, pain and sensitivity can make eating problematic. The first 24 hours soft foods such as ice cream, pudding, gelatin is your best choice. It is important that you drink plenty of fluids and not use a straw. After 24 hours more solid foods like pancakes, eggs, mashed potatoes and soft pasta. After 7-10 days go back to normal diet.
