1-2 Weeks Post-Surgery: Liquid Diet
Remember not to eat warm beverages during these weeks, as they can burn the numb tissues in your mouth. Staying hydrated is essential following the surgery.
2 Weeks to 3 Months Post-Surgery
Avoid hard, crunchy, or chewy foods that can disrupt recovery. Some examples of food you can eat during this time include pasta, oatmeal, soft bread, eggs, yogurt, cheese, hummus, mashed fruits, vegetables, turkey, chicken, fish, and other similar options.
