How soon after tooth extraction can I eat?

It is best to eat after the numbness wears off but for the next 24 hours after tooth extraction, a soft diet is advisable like soup, yogurt, pudding, Jell-O. You can ease into a more normal diet when you feel comfortable doing so. 

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
