Recovering from a dental procedure is often followed by the painstaking process of waiting to go back to enjoying all of your favorite foods.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t make your temporary diet both flavorful and delicious! Don’t sacrifice your tastebuds just because candy is temporarily off the table. When you get yourself fitted with maxillofacial prosthetics, NYC has the menu to keep you going. Here are some tasty food options to consider!

Enjoy These 4 Treats After Your Dental Procedure

  1. Smoothies

This will always be the first go-to option with any dentist since it’s a food that you can swallow without chewing. After you complete your procedure with maxillofacial prosthetics, NYC has plenty of options to fill your blender. Take a cup of orange juice, a sliced-up banana, a handful of strawberries and a cup of ice, add it to your blender, and before you know it, you’ll be sipping a tropical treat that you would’ve enjoyed before the surgery!

  1. Soups

Along with the theme of no-chewing, many soups and broths can be a delicious option, if you treat them as such. You’ll want to avoid soups with foods that require chewing and aren’t soft enough to swallow. Soups like creamy tomato basil and a cheesy broccoli and cheddar go a long way in both nourishment and flavor.

  1. Scrambled Eggs

That’s right – you can chow down and get your daily protein with scrambled eggs! An NYC prosthodontist would recommend scrambled eggs rather than fried or over-easy since both of those are stickier than scrambled. You can give them a little kick by adding garlic powder, red pepper flakes and sea salt, which also helps to break the usual routine of simple salt and pepper.

  1. Pies

This is the one that you’ve been waiting for – pies are on many approved lists for eating post-surgery! Whether you’re looking for a savory minced vegetable pie for dinner or capping off the night with a scrumptious strawberry pie, each option will be great for what you need.
