Post Op Instructions: Your dentist should give you oral or written instructions or both after extracting your teeth. Follow those instructions. If he\she did not, it's best to call the office. Having said that, soft nutritious foods. Bananas, ice cream, soft cheese, fruits, health shakes, etc.

After Extraction,: Avoid food that can cause particles or seeds that can get into the socket. E.G., nuts, sesame seeds to name a few. You may want to stay away from sugary food and eat vitamin c rich food to allow faster healing instead. Stay healthy!
