Post-op instructions: No more or less safe than normally. Follow oral and written instructions given to you by your treating dentist and pose any questions to him or her directly.

Here is the menu:: Soft foods include ice cream, pudding, jello, yogurt, pancakes, mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, pasta, etc. Avoid hard, spicy, crunchy foods such as chips or nuts that may disturb the extraction site for at least one week. After the third day, you may eat anything you wish, unless given other specific instructions by the doctor. No alcoholic beverages should be consumed for 72 hour.
