Foods That Can Help Make Recovering from Implant Surgery Easier
Posted on 7/18/2022 by Dr. Shiotsu
Dental implants are oral appliances that are meant to replace missing teeth. They offer long-term solutions that allow you to speak, eat, and smile just like you would with natural teeth. With dental implants, you will be able to eat your favorite foods with no pain. However, it takes a certain period of time to get to that exciting stage after implant surgery. You need to heal first before enjoying your new set of teeth. Luckily, there are several ways you can speed up the recovery process after implant surgery. One way is eating foods that stimulate healing; these foods include muffins, oatmeal, and soft dairy.
You might find it difficult to eat muffins, especially immediately after the surgery. However, eating them after the first few days is highly recommended for easier chewing. Muffins are delicious and require little chewing. Furthermore, they contain essential nutrients that help speed up the recovery process.
This is also a great meal to eat after oral surgery. It is easy to chew and offers a wide range of essential nutrients. Apart from the numerous health benefits it offers your body, oatmeal is good for your teeth. It has low sugar levels and a soft texture. Eating oatmeal will significantly reduce the chances of oral infections and speed up the recovery process.
Dairy products are rich in calcium. As you might know, calcium is great for your teeth because it helps replace lost minerals. Dairy products help speed up the recovery process by keeping your teeth stronger. Some of the great options you can go for include milkshakes and yogurt that require no chewing. After a few days, you can combine them with scrambled eggs for the best outcome. Contact our offices for more information on the foods that help speed up recovery after implant surgery.
