St Leonards Dental Centre

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. 

Dear Patients,

We are still open, but temporarily seeing patients with essential dental needs only.

Thank you
