A soft diet is recommended for a few days after the surgery to allow the wound to heal properly. In fact, biting into hard food could undermine the success of the procedure.
A normal diet can usually be introduced from 7 to 10 days after surgery, according to the surgeon’s recommendations. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend to extend the period of soft diet, but this extension is rather rare.
It is important to keep an excellent oral hygiene during the healing of the wound. Keeping your mouth clean will reduce the risk of developing an infection during the healing period. You will, however, have to adapt your tooth brushing in order to not disturb the wound unnecessarily.
