Woodbury NY Oral Surgeon | Eating After Dental Implant Placement 

Following dental implant placement, our team may advise you to adhere to a soft food diet lasting from a few days to several weeks. Nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, and beans encourage healing due to their high nutritional content and being easy to eat. Here are some foods we recommend eating after dental implant placement: 

Protein Shakes 

Protein Shakes are an excellent source of not only protein, but vitamins too. Mixing the powder with milk leads to the consumption of even more minerals and vitamins necessary for healing. If you choose to have a protein shake, try to avoid using a straw the first few days and stick to drinking from a glass. The suction created by a straw may reopen the treatment site. 

     

Cottage Cheese 

Cottage cheese is a great source of nutrients, vitamins, and protein to aid in recoveryCottage cheese has a smooth texture that allows easy consumption and helps prevent any potential debris getting stuck in the implant area 

 

Soup 

Soups can be a liquid meal replacement after dental implant placement. Before eating any soups or another warm dish, make sure the implant area has healed enough and avoid anything that is very hot. With protein and vitamins, soups and stews are nutrient rich and the liquid nature make them easy to consumeAvoid chunkier soups that have ingredients such as rice to avoid debris getting lodged in the implant area. 

 

It is important that you follow our post operation instructions carefully. Doing so will help your mouth heal faster and prevent any potential damage from occurring. Remember to stick to soft foods for as long as you are able and to avoid overly hot foods and foods that can leave behind debris such as rice, popcorn and sunflower seeds. The foods listed above are only some of the options that we recommend eating after a dental implant placement. 

  

If you have any questions regarding dental implant placement, other food recommendations, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us.
