Having had this procedure myself, start with soups, or very soft foods. Avoid crunchy, or chewy foods, even if chewed with your front teeth, you could get pieces lodged in the holes, or even tear stitches (if you got them), not to mention the pain if a piece of hard food gets stuck in them!

Wisdom tooth extraction?

A surgical extraction of a wisdom tooth (or teeth) is common with most young adults. During this type of extraction, an oral surgeon will cut into the gum line to expose the tooth, from which point the extraction is performed much in the same way as a simple tooth extraction. Prior to wisdom tooth extraction, the dental office will take a panoramic x-ray to give the dental surgeon a focused and clear view of how the wisdom teeth are situated and an indication of the difficulty of extraction.
