Simple: Soft diet,nothing hot or spicy ,no smoking or drinking through a straw. Keep the area clean and don't dislodge the blood clots that formed in the extraction sites .

Diet after dentist: Be wary of particulate foods, which could enter a gum wound. Stay liquid as much as you can: dairy; juice; water; drink with straws; milk shake; special K drinks; Dr Atkins drinks; evolve to apple sauce, pudding; yogurt over days.

Nourishing food: You may eat any nourishing food that can be taken with comfort. Very soft food for the first several days is recommended. Avoid hard, crunchy foods such as potato chips or nuts that may complicate the extraction site for at least 7 days. Switch to regular foods when you feel comfortable enough to do so. Take care.

Yes, you can: For the first 24-48 hours after extraction, you should maintain a soft food diet to avoid dislodging the blood clot. Take care.
