How long should you have to wait to eat solid food after getting a tooth removed?

In brief: Solid food

I recomend 24 hrs, chew on the oposite side.
Rinse with warm salt water to remove food debris from the extraction site.

In brief: Eat whatever you

Are comfortable eating once the numbness has worn off.
Obviously stay away from sharp, hard, crunchy foods, chips, nuts, popcorn etc - things that can get lodged in the socket. Generally foods that can be cut with a fork alone are safe to eat. If you have any concerns, please contact your dentist.
