@pmerr: I had four impacted wisdow teeth removed when I was 21.
Jello was a big one, since it was cold and didn’t really stick to anything in your mouth.
Mashed potatoes of course.
How about mashed cauliflower?
Maybe a pureed soup would work? Cooked any veggies (butternut squash would be good), add some broth, seasonings and cream (I used Greek yogurt). However, I did not have many culinary skills when I was 21.
I remember that hot foods did not feel the greatest though.
I basically lived on Jello and mashed potatoes for a whole week when I had mine done. I was not able to chew rice or pasta.

Ice cream, pudding, smoothies, milkshakes, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, yogurt, creamy soups (tomato, pureed potato or the like, nothing with chunks), toast and creamy peanut butter, popsicles (just let them melt, don’t bite), soft cornbread, beans… I’ve had my share of dental work, can you tell?

@Lolasmomma: I was put under too when I had mine removed..
@sienna76: I had 2 extracted at 17, so I really enjoyed eating baby food and other random soft stuff that my mom made. I was put under too, so it’s harder for me to compare how he’ll feel.
@OldMrsMcDonald: haha! Then I guess you know what you’re talking about then! 🙂

I had all 4 impacted wisdom teeth taken out 2 weeks ago. I didn’t eat any meals for the first 5 days or so…just stuck with ice cream, yogurt, apple sauce, and soups (as long as they didn’t have big chucks in them). Honestly I wasn’t even hungry because I was just so swollen and it was very weird to not know what was going on in the back of my mouth. I ate like a rabbit for a while and just used my front teeth to chew.
