Hi OP; I drank the Ensure drinks a few times a day along with oatmeal, mashed tots and other soft foods. I had mine out over a month ago and i’m still recovering. I can pretty much eat whatever now, just very carefully as i still have open holes. Also it took a long time for my jaw to get strong enought to bite down without soreness.

Sorry, but I had all sweet and creamy things. Mostly pudding, apple sauce, and Ensure, with crushed steroid pills mixed in.

I had a bad experience getting my wisdom teeth out. It took two weeks for the swelling to go down and the pain to subside. During the first week I ate only tomato soup. At the end of that week I went back to the dentist and he berated me for not getting enough protein. His surprising recommendation was a basic McDonald’s hamburger. No pickles. Seriously they require almost no chewing.

I had all 4 removed at once and right after I went shopping and ate a hamburger…then slept for a couple days lol.  I didn’t eat anything special, just slower, and less because I wasn’t really hungry.

I’m getting all 4 of mine taken out in a couple weeks. Currently, my plan is oatmeal, protein/meal replacement shakes, smoothies, yogurt, brothy soups, and mashed potatoes. 

I should probably invest in a bottle of One A Day vitamins too. My current vitamins are gummies, so that probably won’t go over well.

I had smoothies, yogurt, mashed potatoes, and ice cream.

I was so swollen that I couldn’t close my mouth for a week without biting down on flesh (because it had expanded so much), so I got sick of those foods during the week. Lol.

@slombard87:  Smoked salmon (lox) was awesome, as long as it didn’t have any little seasoning bits. Even wrap it up in small pieces with some cream cheese and just gum it and swallow. 😀

I also had an awful experience!  I had all 4 removed at once and I ended up having dry socket in the bottom two.  Ugh!!! It required me to go back to my oral Sergon like 3x a week to have meds put in my existing holes. Ugh. But I ate PANCAKES!  I cut tthem small and swallowed. I also ate yogurt!

Roasted veggie ( tomatoes,garlic, eggplant, onion) blended. Pudding, jello, cream of wheat, oatmeal blended. sauted kale with chicken broth. Protein shakes. A lot of blended soups. i would blend it to a liquid. oh yeah blended chili . I lost like 6 lbs in a week but I ate pretty healthy.

I guess it’s a good thing I adore mashed potatoes, because I’m going to have all 4 wisdom teeth removed the 22nd of March! I planned on eating mashed potatoes, jello, protein shakes, broth, etc. anyway so at least I’m on the right track!

guacamole, hummus,  refried beans,  creamed spinach, scrambled eggss, blended soups ( I have a recipe for a great appl and butternut squash one if you want), Stouffer’s stuffed peppers and lasagna blended or mashed up. You can even get unflavored protein powder to mix in with your savory foods, like mashed potatoes to get more nutrients. I consider myself a pro at the blended food diet – I’ve had all 4 wisdom teeth surgically removed, two other teeth extracted, and both jaws broken and wired shut for 6 weeks.
