How many days after wisdom teeth extraction can I start to eat regulalry?

How many days after wisdom teeth extraction can I start to eat regularly?
A week or 2 weeks?
Also when can I start exercising?

I also started getting an infection, but its better. When can I return to normal activities and eating hard food?
My right side cant open fully…

I have no flippin’ clue. Some people are able to eat semi-normally the same day they have their teeth extracted. I had all 4 removed last Tuesday and I’m still having some difficulty with eating normally. I’m still mostly sticking to mushy foods that don’t require much chewing and are easy to swallow.

    i’d say itll be maybe 5 days before those stupid stitch things in your mouth stop hurting when your eating anything solid, maybe like 6 or 7

  3. I think after two days you can eat almost normal, but you have to avoid things like potato chips or anything that has sharp corners like that. Chew gently and you will notice if food is causing pain. The best advice I can give you is to rinse with warm salty water very often – like 10-20 times a day. This will really help prevent infection and encourage healing. I did this for as long as it took for the water i was spitting to nop longer be pink – about a week or more. Good luck!

  4. Your problem is one of a wound to the body. Like any other wound, a scab forms over the wound which allows the underlying tissue to heal. So, you can start to eat immediately provided you are careful of the surface scabs over the empty sockets where your wisdom teeth were. Avoid crunchy things, anything hard which could damage or break the scabs. Do not use straws as the suction in your mouth can literally suck the scabs out of the sockets, which is a very BAD thing to have happen. You have to let your body do what it does best, heal itself from a wound, and the scab which formed is critical to the process. Infection is the most probable complication since your mouth holds bacteria in great quantities. Use a decent mouthwash on a regular basis as well as brushing your teeth and tongue and flossing. All of these things will reduce the possibility of infection. If you get an infection, only a doctor can treat you. There is NO self medication fix for an infection resulting from having your teeth extracted. Only an oral surgeon can extract wisdom teeth, and an oral surgeon can advise you on infection. You should have been told this when you had your teeth pulled. Go back to the dentist who did the job if you are having any difficulties of ANY kind as a result of the surgery. My wisdom teeth were coming in sideways and were pushing my back molars out of line, so they had to go. So, I learned and fortunately, not the hard way.
