Post - Implants Diet

Just like any other type of medical process, dental implant treatment also requires some recovery period and it is very important to follow the instructions of the dentist for the first two weeks post-surgery.

Eating food may not be the first concern after the implant. After the process, you need to wait for some time to eat the food of your choice. Maintaining the right level of nutrition is always important and following a proper diet is necessary to feel better and to recover faster. A patient can start eating liquid or soft food a couple of hours after the implant and it is necessary to stick on to a soft food diet for a while for a few days.

Chewing hard or tough food creates strain and irritation at the implant site. It may lead to the failure of the implant. For optimal healing and to yield successful results, it is necessary to follow the instructions of Oral surgeons regarding what to eat and what not to eat.

Food menu for your fast recovery:

  • Cooked cereals such as oatmeal or oat bran
  • Yoghurt
  • Fruit juice, coffee, tea, milk, and water
  • Eggs
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Fruits like ripe berries, peaches, and pears
  • Boiled or mashed vegetables to get enough nutrients
  • Ice Cream
  • Pudding, pound cake and milkshakes
  • Veggie soups
  • Soft sweets such as cupcakes or muffins
  • Soft bread
  • Soft tuna fish or flaky fish

Food to avoid post-dental implant:

For fast healing, it is better to avoid these foods for a while after the dental implant.

  • Very hot or very cold
  • Spicy food
  • Seeds and nuts
  • Acidic food such as Citrus and lemon
  • Hard and powdery food such as popcorn and chips
  • Alcoholic beverages and smoking

Eating sticky and hard food causes difficulty and worsens the pain at the implant site. It can cause bleeding and other discomforts. This can lengthen the healing process.
