How long should I wait to eat hot foods after a wisdom tooth removal and a root canal?

Hot Foods: Following root canal therapy, the temperature of the food is irrelevant since there is no nerve in the tooth and therefore the tooth is not sensitive to thermal stimuli. Following a surgical extraction, i would suggest that you eat temperate foods for a few days to give the tissues time to heal. Since each wound and person is different, use sound judgement for your specific situation. ...Read more

How long after a root canal can I start eating and drinking?

I would also caution doing any heavy biting or chewing on the root canaled tooth until you put a permanent restoration on the tooth. Root canaled teeth tend to become brittle over time, and you could end up damaging your tooth beyond repair. Root canaled teeth can be sore up to 3 days afterwards. ...Read more

No great answer: Teeth that are beginning w symptoms that are mild to moderate usually respond well to nsaid's. As the tooth problem matures/worsens, I have not found a medication for pain that works universally. Even narcotic rx is rarely effective to control all pain.
