Guide To Eating With Dental Implants

Posted on 5/8/2023 by Evan
Guide To Eating With Dental ImplantsAfter dental implant surgery, you may have many novel difficulties with chewing and eating. Can you please list the acceptable and unacceptable foods? When will you be able to eat anything you want again? Dental implants, unlike dentures, do not need any dietary changes after they have healed. However, in the days and weeks following surgery, there are foods you should refrain from eating to safeguard your implants.

What To Eat After Dental Implant Surgery

After getting dental implants, you should immediately start eating only soft, non-chewable foods. Smoothies and protein drinks are recommended for the first day following oral surgery since the numbing medications used may lead you to bite your mouth or tongue. Milk, pudding, ice cream, silky tofu, baked potatoes, apple sauce, and soups or rich soups are all excellent choices for the days after surgery.

After a week or two, you can gradually introduce more challenging foods like raw meat and vegetables. But that depends on how fast your gums and jawbone recover. Please refrain from using the implanted side of your mouth for chewing for at least two weeks.

Most individuals are ready to ditch the bland and uninteresting diet of soft foods soon after surgery. Patients usually need a week to feel normal before regaining their regular diet. However, if you recover quickly from surgery, you can eat solid foods again within a few days. Keep soft, easily chewed foods on hand while you heal.
