5 Foods to Eat after a Tooth Extraction

Knowing what to eat can shorten your recovery time and get your mouth healed quickly without further complications. While you certainly can eat more foods than are featured here, you’ll want to stick to foods that are soft and require minimal jaw movement to eat. You should wait at least one week before eating any spicy, crunchy, or chewy foods.
