I just had 4 wisdom teeth extracted last week. And I recommend soft foods like: noodles, soups, scrambled eggs, porridge, cottage cheese, etc. for the first 3-4 days after getting the extractions. After that it just depends on how fast you recover and how your mouth is feeling.
***DO NOT eat things like rice and potato chips as they can get stuck in the wound and cause an infection.*** After 48 hours you can start eating normally. If there is swelling, eating soft foods is a better idea. Also, if food gets stuck in the holes, rince with water and salt, or use a plastic syringe to clean the holes.
how long before getting one's wisdom teeth pulled should one drink?
Now that would not be wise. Your not supposed to smoke anything for at least a week after getting your wisdom teeth pulled out.
Most wisdom teeth are pulled out with local anesthesia. Rare cases of very afraid people has been put asleep.
yes .... lot's of people dead
For me, they put my braces on, not putting brackets on the ones being pulled, they few months later they pulled out the 4 wisdom teeth.
I just got my wisdom teeth pulled as well about that long ago and was wondering the same thing, but everywhere I have looked it says a minimum of 48 hours to prevent dry socket. Sounds like 72 hours is best though....... Oh well...
No. I had my wisdom teeth out today, and one of the doctor's instructions was to not blow my nose for at least two weeks.
