Wisdom Teeth Wisdom!: Good day; Post op instructions after extractions recommend you keep food away from extraction site for 24- 48 hours to prevent a dry socket from occuring. Most recommended foods at this time would be soft and not require extensive mastication. I don't know how deeply impacted teeth were; but speak with surgeon for additional post op information.

Yes, you can: Just be careful and try to keep the ramen noodles away from the socket. However, maintain a healthful diet, and proper oral hygiene. Good luck.

Better: As protein, rather than carbohydrate, facilitates healing, you would be bette off with a soft high protein diet. Consider ice cream, milk shakes, chicken soup, Ensure, pudding, etc.

Sure: sure but at your own risk.....just keep the area clean and flushed out. Good luck!!

Yes: Yes. Irrigate the socket afterwards. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.
