My face looked REALLY swollen when I got mine out too. It was awful. I reccomend lots and lots of ramen noodles, soup, and ice cream. Jello is also really good.

@KaitlinHudson:

I just had mine out a couple months ago. I lived off of pudding, yogurt and string cheese. You can have applesauce too! It just wasn’t on the menu for me haha

I always had mac and cheese after my braces got tightened (I’m a wimp), and just chewed on the side that didn’t hurt as badly. I bet you’d be okay with any type of pasta!

cottage cheese, and baked potato (but mashed up with butter until it was more of a puree – actualy probably going straight for mashed potatoes would have been smarter…)

Awww…I hope you feel better soon!  I don’t miss getting mine out, but the worst part was that I was hungry and couldn’t eat enough to fill me up and then I would get sick because my medications said I need to eat food with the pills…vicious cycle!

I ate protein shakes, apple sauce, pudding, yogurt (not the berry kind with any seeds though!) scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, soup, and Gatorade as my main food for several days.  

Edit:  Just remember with any shakes/drinks you have, no straws allowed!

Milkshakes, soup, cottage cheese, more milkshakes… Wink

Hope you feel better soon!  I was back to normal and off drugs after 36 hours so I hope you have the same luck!

It’s easier to tell you what NOT to eat or drink.

Nothing hard,crunchy,chewy, spicey or acidic. No straws! You just have to avoid anything that has the potential to dissolve or knock out the blood clots to avoid dry sockets or loosening your stitches.

I had mine out exactly three weeks ago. I’d recommend apple sauce, yogurt, soup, scrambled eggs and macaroni and cheese. I also drank Ensure to help fill me up and make sure I was getting enough nutrients.

Oh hon! *hugs*!!

I ate oatmeal and cream of wheat alot.

I did some soup too but just make sure not slurp it or you might get dry socket and I guess that hurts like hell.

Milk shakes are great also to take some of the swelling down.
