Menus and Recovery

Although eating after surgery may be the last thing on your mind, it is important to nourish your body to help the healing process. It is important to drink plenty of fluids and avoid hot liquids. Use fresh ingredients when possible, but using frozen or canned can also work.

Foods to avoid

  • Spicy foods
  • Popcorn
  • Acidic juices
  • Carbonated drinks (breaks down blood clot which delays healing)
  • Chips

DO NOT USE STRAWS AFTER EXTRACTIONS (sucking action can cause removal of blood clot which delays healing)
