Plain Jello, pudding, mashed potatoes, ice cream, pureed food and ice chips, Basically anything soft and wet that does not require chewing. Soft cereal like Cream of Wheat ior Cream of Rice or baby food - not toddler. .

The dry socket is the result of the blood clot being prematurely removed. Shallow sips from a straw - a small teaspoon at a time - is okay. The draw it takes to get a mouthful of shake is what dislodges the clot.

had mine dug out 40 years ago this summer, boy were my gums swollen, could not get my teeth together. I wanted cold things. I recommend to let him eat what he wants.

Want to know what I subsisted on?

Seriously, it was ice cream, orange juice and plastic wrapped raw chocolate chip cookie dough that I let dissolve in my mouth.

Hi All.
Well were home safe and sound.He's doing fine getting some rest.They the Dr,and nurses took great care of him.We were very concerned about the anesthesia.His last surgery (his first) he was 7,he had a bad reaction from it.
Knowing his past we let this Dr know about it,and thankfully I had his previous Dr's # and hospital where he was admitted.UCSF did a great job giving this Dr detailed needed info.They made sure it didn't happen this time.He woke up alert asnwered all the questions right.It went well :)
He's allowed to eat what he wants,just keep the area clean.Lay down as much as possible.
He was a riot on the way home.I think he was still under the happy gas.
Thank you all very much for the suggestions,he loved the pudding idea.I'm making some up and have cups ready made for when he feels like something to eat.Pudding never crossed my mind.
You guys were a tremendous help.Thanks again. :)

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

When my son first got his braces he requested mashed potatoes. Lived on them for a couple of days.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...
