Unfortunately with having teeth removed, everything has to be soft/creamy. I was going to say jello, but it sounds like you’re tired of sweet stuff. Can you do soft foods like macaronni yet? Maybe make some mac ‘n cheese or eat some potato salad or something? I can’t recall how long after surgery you can start eating more solid stuff.

You can make soup that isn’t creamy, just stick your normal soup in a blender. I did have a lot of smoothies, but I also had things that are soft but not liquid, like spinach or other steamed veggies, softer kinds of fish like salmon, risotto, chili, and pastina

I had lots of soup! I just drank the broth. Just make sure it’s not too hot. I also really liked having peanut butter smoothies. They made me feel very full. I started eating oatmeal too. I would sort of just swallow the whole spoonful of it without chewing.

All I ate was soup when I had mine out a few weeks ago. It was hell and then I got dry socket so I had to eat more soup for another week. It sucked but I lost 5lbs lol

I found that I could eat soft foods like ravioli, macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes, ripe bananas, pumpkin pie, applesauce without chewing, by taking small bites.

I ate pretty much soup, ice cream, and raviolis for about 4 days and then I went back to eating normal for the most part..just being careful not to chew too hard! The worst part for me was going back to work day 3 on the stupid codeine pills for pain. Holy crap I couldn’t concentrate!!

@slombard87:  I drank boost shakes for the nutrients and mashed potatoes were my best friend. Couldn’t eat for only 3ish days so it wasn’t awful.

My dad made me runny mashed potatoes with beef broth, garlic, and cheese. I got a dry socket and couldn’t eat solids for 2 weeks. I basically lived off potatoes and pudding.

I don’t have any other suggestions that PPs haven’t mentioned (I ate lots of soup and pudding), but I am writing to tell you that whatever you do, DON’T DRINK OUT OF A STRAW! I’m sure your dentist told you this, but I made this mistake and the suction caused a dry socket, which is unbelievable painful and takes FOREVER to heal.

Good luck!

Sweet: milkshakes, pudding and jello. 

Savory: mashed potatoes with homemade gravy was a lifesaver. I took chicken broth and thickened it with beurre monte (soft butter mixed with flour and added to the hot broth.) also. Soft cheeses: marscapone, cream cheese, Brie without the rind. And hearty blended soups, like tomato or cream of mushroom or lobster bisque, and lots of V8 and carrot juice! I’m sure my cholesterol skyrocketed that week, but at least I wasn’t hungry or miserable. 🙂

I had a terrible healing experience. I had a TON of swelling and lots of pain, so I barely ate for the first 3 days – I managed to make a strawberry frosty from Wendy’s last alost a week haha. But once I started to heal, I mostly stuck to anything that didn’t crunch. Try mixed veggies! If they’re cooked enough, they won’t be crunchy or hard to eat and it’ll get you more interest and nutrients than sweet stuff.
