Heya sweetie - I know how it feels to be in so much pain with your wisdom teeth - unfortumately I'm STILL waiting to have my top two teeth taken out. It's gotten so bad now that I only have a half a wisdom tooth on each side. The waiting lists here are incredible. I could be waiting for some time.... anything mashed is good
mashed potatos, mashed bananas, that sort of thing. Soup is great! I never was a soup person until I got into such a pain with these teeth. For a few days I was in agony and I discovered at that point that tea-cloths soaked in cold water in the fridge were also good to eat! OK, shred... but the idea was the same
fortunately they gave me prescription painkillers and something to clear an infection that had gotten into the nerves, so now i'm completley pain free and can go back to eating things like crunchy apples. They've waited so long now that the nerves in each tooth have been exposed, and are now dead.... so although I've only got a half tooth on either side, I can't feel it anymore. What I can feel, is the sharp edges ulcerating the inside of my cheek. Not nice... man I'm so jealous of you getting yours taken away!! I'm terrified of the dentist too and I'm glad they decided that they'll sedate me when they take them out. So food.... well pretty much anything you like! As long as it's pureed of course
mince and tatties is really good.... if you make it properly the mince goes really tender and the veggies are soft, so you'll still be getting a nice balanced meal with your mashed potatos. Personally I love crunchy veg, but as long as I'm getting the good stuff, I don't care how it comes. If I have to suck it through a straw, so be it.
