How long do I need to wait to be able to eat solid food after wisdom tooth extraction? Do milk have any side effect?

Few days: If you didn't get specific instructions from your dentist or oral surgeon, eat soft foods for a few days until the area has started healing. Then start adding more solid foods slowly, and as long as your gums don't become more painful or start bleeding, then you can continue to add more solid foods until you are back to eating your regular diet. ...Read more

Carefully rinse gently after eating. If you think it is a bad idea to do something -- it probably is ! good luck. ...Read more

How to treat a gap between molars after wisdom tooth extraction? It is holding big chunks of foods that i can only remove by flossing. Very annoying.

How to treat a gap between molars after wisdom tooth extraction? It is holding big chunks of foods that i can only remove by flossing. Very annoying.

Thorough exam needed: See your dentist-to determine why the gap developed. Teeth require force to move and reduced bone support allows for lesser force to move teeth. Therefore a dentist needs to determine if you have traumatic occlusion (imperfect bite), periodontal bone loss, decay, broken restoration, or possible harmful habits (like biting on pen or pencil between the 2 teeth will wedge them apart). ...Read more
