Within the first 24 hours after tooth removal surgery, you should avoid consuming anything that involves chewing. If they don’t fill you up and you want to eat solid food, go for soft meals that don’t require much chewing, like soups, salads, and smoothies.
If you have a toothache, it’s a good idea to see your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will be able to give you a prescription for a painkiller that you can take with you to the dentist’s office. This will help relieve your pain and prevent you from having to go back for another appointment.

Can I eat bread after tooth extraction?
Soft bread and grains are excellent after surgery, including white bread, wheat bread, flatbread, and flour tortilla. Grains such as oatmeal, cream of wheat, rice, pasta noodles, and saltines are good for recovery. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, you may want to limit your intake of meat and dairy products.
Vegetarian and vegan diets are generally lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than meat-based diets, but they are still high in sodium, which can raise your blood pressure and increase your risk of heart disease.
