When you have any type of an oral procedure done, there is often the warning to eat soft foods that aren’t likely going to cause damage to your mouth as it heals. However, this doesn’t really tell you what is safe to eat and what’s not.
If you are getting ready for an oral procedure and want to make sure you have the right foods in your home prior to having it done, then here are a few good foods to make sure to have on hand. They can help you eat, while still being soft enough to allow your mouth to heal properly.
Foods That Are Safe After Oral Procedures
Yogurt is one of the best foods to eat after an oral procedure. It fills your body with calcium, and it gives you the benefit of being very soft. You can eat it straight out of the fridge, or you can opt to freeze it if you want something even colder to help with any swelling in your mouth. Plus, you have numerous tasty flavors to choose from.
Broth is another great option since it comes in so many healthy varieties. Just make sure that you don’t warm it up too much, as that can hurt your mouth after having an oral procedure done. Just a little warmer than room temperature is good.
Applesauce is another great food to consider, since it is soft and helps you feel full due to how much fiber it can provide. If you want to add a little more to it, make some oatmeal and mix in some applesauce so you get a full meal that is really soft and healthy during healing.
