    ouch...how long is it gonna hurt? I have to get mine removed next month and was just curious.

    As far as soft foods...there's always everyone's fav - the good 'ol protein shake!

    Honestly when I got my wisdom teeth out I simply went all out on protein shakes. Luckily, we can still eat oatmeal with no problem. But mostly - let your mouth heal. Personally it only took me about three days before I could eat solid food again. Good luck!

    I had local and all 4 taken out at once. I drove myself home and felt better after 3 days. I was also back to solid food after about 2 days. Yogurt and cottage cheese are good, as are protein shakes. You could also try pureeing or mashing up your food.

    heh.. don't think that you are thinking about the same teeth we are. Having your wisdom teeth removed involves a -surgery-.

    Hence, you saying "I took one out" leads me to believe that we are not on the same topic.

    Not sure of the recovery time.. I've heard from 3 days to 2 weeks.. I am swollen up now like you wouldn't believe.. Most of the pain has subsided.. I've eaten soup,oatmeal, even ate some turkey (Really slow). Lots of cottage cheese.. Yogurt.. Apple sauce..

    Anything can be liquidised with a good blender!

    Make up shakes - Skim milk, yoghurt, banana, berries, cottage cheese, whey, PB cinnamon... Oats can be added as well..

    You can cook up some oat bran and stir in yoghurt, PB and protein powder.

    Mashed sweet potato is very soft enough (you just have to whip it A LOT) - then just mash some hard boiled eggs and mix them through too....

    Eggs in general are great - scrambled, omlettes, soft boiled and mashed. Very soft and a good protein source.

    Make protein pudding with protein powder, some flavourings and some xanthum gum...

    Make some soups and then stir through cottage cheese...


    You could even try the famous 'tuna shake'!

    There are some idea's in these threads:

    My wisdom teeth came in perfectly straight. Boy does it sound like I missed out on some fun.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
