What to Eat after Oral Surgery

Are you having oral surgery? What you eat after treatment can affect your recovery. To promote healthy healing, affordable dental care experts recommend the following diet.

Demand Dairy

For many decades, oral surgeons have believed that dairy foods are some of the very best foods for dental health. Dairy foods are extremely high in bone-building calcium, vitamins, and minerals. And studies continue to show how dairy foods contribute to strong, healthy teeth. While numerous dairy foods are considered to be soft foods, oral surgeons agree that these are the best after oral surgery:

  • Skim milk
  • Low-fat and unsweetened yogurts
  • Yogurt-based smoothies
  • Cottage cheese
  • Ricotta cheese

Look for Lean Protein

Proteins play a major part in your body’s healthy function. That’s why oral surgeons advise you to put protein on your plate to help you recover from oral surgery. While there’s a long list of protein sources, oral surgeons recommend choosing types low in fat, salt, sugar, and chemical preservatives. And if you’re concerned about the cost of lean meats, consider some vegetarian protein sources as an affordable dental care option. And after oral surgery, your dentist in Manassas may also recommend staying away from spices and softening firm meats in the blender to avoid disrupting healing. These are the top lean proteins to eat after oral surgery:

  • Turkey
  • Chicken
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Lean beef
  • Pork
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Beans
  • Tofu
  • Nut butters

Request the Right Drinks

Think before you drink after having oral surgery. After all, it’s vital to maintain your fluid levels to avoid dehydration, promote proper healing, keep your mouth moist, and rinse away plaque and particles that can lead to tooth decay. But you need to choose the right types of liquids. To promote dental health and healing after oral surgery, your dentist in Manassas would advise that you pick the following drinks first:

  • Water
  • Fruit juices diluted with water to lower sugar
  • Vegetable juices
  • Caffeine-free green tea
