Can I have cereal with almond milk after an upper wisdom tooth extraction? The cereal is honey bunches of oats. What about yougurt with fruit in it?
Soft diet at first.: After any extraction I would recommend a softer diet until the gum heals and closes the hole. Honey bunches of oats is too hard and if it gets into the extraction socket it is likely to cause pain. Anything that breaks into hard, sharp pieces is not a good idea. Yogurt w/ fruit should be fine. ...Read more

You have no control over your tooth size, jaw size and growth of 3rd. Molars. They are the cards in life you have been delt.
If the teeth erupt and you can clean them, you may be able to keep them a lifetime. But if they are unable to come up or only come up part way, they cause big trouble, painful infections and trouble for the tooth next to them. You could loose multiple teeth. ...Read more
Usually anything: Usually there are no restrictions other than really hot foods while your mouth is numb and anything that you have to suck through a straw because using a straw could lead to loss of clot and then a dry socket.

A wisdom tooth extraction is an extraction of a third molar. It it the farthest tooth back in the mouth both on the top and the bottom. Depending on how impacted the tooth is and angle the tooth formed at will determine if you are a able to have it out if say a lower third molar is enveloped with the nerve. Your tooth may need to be "cut in half", bone may need to be removed or it may be as simple as other teeht. Only a consultation with x-rays will determine how difficult it will be to extract. Most wisdom teeth can be extracted under local or sedation. It depends on your anxiety level and how much you want to know what is going on. It is also best to get all 4 wisdom teethout at once and heal at one time and not have to worry about it later in life. If you decide on sedation, you will need to discusss this with the surgeon to make sure you are medically fit to go under sedation.
Good luck! ...Read more

Surgery: In order to remove a wisdom tooth surgery will most likely be necessary as the teeth may be impacted (buried) or have multiple roots. The process is to lift up the gum around the tooth, removing bone that is covering the tooth, ; cutting the tooth into pieces to remove it. This is true of most lower wisdom teeth while most upper ones are removed in one piece. Usually with local or IV anesthesia. ...Read more
