Also, try mushing up icecream and sucking that up - tastes like a thick-shake. And freshly squeezed vegetable and fruit juices - yummy and refreshing and very good for your recovery.
Oh! And you aren't supposed to do any sucking motions (sucking through a straw, etc). You can get dry sockets and to get them cut out is worse than getting the first surgery because they have to go in and cut out what has healed over. Just so you don't have to go through more pain. They really pushed Trav not to suck through a straw. That's all they said "Whatever you do, DO NOT USE A STRAW!"
And no mouthwash for a week after you start eating hard foods. If you get food stuck in the holes, you salt water to swish it out.
Any more questions, PM me. Trav remembers quite a bit.
Here's a website I found that might help a little too.http://www.umanitoba.ca/outreach/wisdomtooth/wteeth.htm
