Wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth removal

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I had all four wisdom teeth removed on Wednesday November 16th 2016. I was wondering if I can't start eating normal food now ? And if so like what should I stay away from. Also can I start having like a coke for a drink or is it to soon still ?

There is no reason to restrict any food or drink at this point in time.You can eat and drink anything that you like.Your body will take care of all of the healing without any intervention.It will take about six weeks for the socket to close completely.It heals from the bottom up.Again ,you can eat and drink anything that you like.The clot has formed and your socket is protected.
