Foods to eat after dental implant surgery

Dental implant surgery

You may have slight swelling after the dental implants have been placed. As part of our aftercare after dental implants placement at Dental clinic Ostojić we recommend that for the first week after the dental implants placement it is important to eat only soft foods as your mouth will be a little sore after the dental implants have been placed.

Biting on hard foods is not only not recommended but may also be physically impossible. It is best to stick to a soft and preferably cool or cold diet such as soups, yoghurts, risotto or rice dishes, smoothies and ice cream.

Cold foods may help to ease any swelling you may have by cooling down the area and feel nicer in your palate. We also recommend that you avoid alcohol but do keep your fluid levels up with lots of water. Remember to avoid the fizzy drinks because of their sugary content.

Natural juices and smoothies are recommended as they are easy to drink and a very good source of vitamins and other nutrients. Very hot food and drinks must also be avoided. This will assist with the healing of the dental implants process.
