I'm wondering how long will it take for my extraction gaps to close?

I'm wondering how long will it take for my extraction gaps to close?

For the crater-like dent to disappear completely, you may be waiting for months. Your systemic health also matters. Unhealthy body is slow to heal. ...Read more

I'm too scared to eat anything after my extraction, but what are somethings I can eat for the next few days besides oatmeal or soup?

I'm too scared to eat anything after my extraction, but what are somethings I can eat for the next few days besides oatmeal or soup?

Dental extraction: Hi Brad. For most routine dental extractions you are able to eat most soft foods. Most pastas, pancakes, eggs, soups, smoothies, etc are fine to eat. Just stay away from straws and sports bottles that need suction to sip as that can promote bleeding and loss of the blood clot. I also recommend to not chew on that site for about two weeks to allow time to heal. ...Read more
