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.

yes you can. because it does not have any effect on your wisdom teeth.

No, some can be pulled normally like all the other teeth. Not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed. They only have to be pulled or surgically cut out if there isn't room for them to grow in, or if there is some other problem with them. But most people keep their wisdom teeth with no problems. I still have all my wisdom teeth, but I had several other molars pulled before the wisdom teeth appeared due to decay and abscesses. That made plenty of room for them.

yeah, I was told not to smoke for the first 24 hours

Your wisdom teeth do not necessarily have to be pulled out. Usually, the situation is that the gums are not large enough to accommodate all of your teeth, including the wisdom ones, hence they have to be removed to prevent crowding, which can be very painful in some cases. There are a few people whose mouths are large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, so they don't have to be pulled out.

The chances are it will ease your pain! Go for it!
