As tolerated: Recovery depends upon the difficulty of the extraction, including residual bleeding. Activity resumption depends upon how well the person is recovering. As recovery improves ease into activity.

What's comfortable: At this point in healing, you can return to a normal diet if you are comfortable. Avoid the surgical areas for a few more days if possible.
