Oral surgeon of course sent you  home with a one pager on how to care for my mouth and what not to eat in the days and weeks that followed. But having lived through it in the real world, I thought I could put the instructions into more useful terms with recipes and meal plan guidance.

BEFORE SURGERY

Ideally, schedule your wisdom teeth removal for the afternoon so that you can get a large, solid meal in beforehand. Though there are liquid foods you can eat within the first 24 hours, between the meds and the pain, you might not be able to get much down. Go with something filling and full of fiber—nuts and seeds are a bonus since you will not be eating those things for a WHILE.

AFTER SURGERY

Control the bleeding: Your doctor will likely instruct you to tamp down on the wounds with gauze for the first day after surgery. It’s best to wet the gauze prior to putting it in your mouth so that there’s no sticking. Have a few black tea bags at the ready in case the bleeding continues without lessening for more than 24 hours. The tannic acid in the tea will help stop the bleeding. Soak the bag in warm water for a few minutes, squeeze it out, and bite down on it the same way you’ve been doing with the gauze.

Control the swelling: The more you can ice your face with a flexible ice pack or frozen peas within the first 24 hours, the better you will look and feel the following day. Apply for 20-30 minutes, then take a 10 minute break. Use a thin dish towel or pillow case around the pack so it’s gentler on your skin. After the first 24 hours, STOP USING ICE. Two days post-op you can switch to warm compresses. Fill a bag with rice and stick it in the microwave or use a gentle heating pad. Do this 2-3 times a day for a few days. If you’re worried about appearances, I would give yourself a week before your face returns to normal to resume any public-facing activities (unless you don’t care, in which case, go for it).
