As gross as it sounds, I actually ate a lot of baby food from those little glass jars.  Applesauce, pear, etc... it may not sound appetizing, but they work well for the first day or two, when your gums are really sensitive.  And in all honesty, they don't taste as bad as you might think.

milkshakes etc are great, but DON"T USE A STRAW. 'they' told me that it would cause dry sockets... much like smoking does. use a shallowish spoon, so you don't have to open your mouth so wide. good luck!

i'm so glad someone said that....no straws! 

 
haha, when i had all four of my wisdom teeth removed....all i ate was donuts and chicken noodle soup for days....  man, that was fun.  however, i don't suggest doing this because you'll get addicted to the donuts and want them for weeks afterwards (and you'll develope an aversion to chicken noodle soup)....oh man, now i want a donut.....why do i have to live within walking distance of dunkin donuts!

I had all 4 of mine out this summer. The comments above all have great suggestions! What I found when I was on the mushy diet was that despite how much I love ice cream and pudding and milkshakes and all that, after a day of eating only sweet stuff you get REALLY sick of it. Mashed potatoes were my savior, especially with stuff in them, like a little cheese melted and swirled in, or some beef gravy. Also, plain chicken or beef broth (with no noodles or anything) is great.

And to keep the swelling down, I kept bags of frozen peas on my face for the first day, wrapped in towels.

Whatever you do, DON'T EAT Reese's puffs. You'll get really hungry for solid food, and possibly try to fool yourself into thinking you can just chew with your front teeth... take it from this buffoon, it will only lead to misery.  Grin

Ick, i'm getting mine done next week, over winter break (!)  So thanks everyone for the suggestions, because i'll need them too! ((Although my main issue is NOT the food or pain afterwards, it's when they stick that needle in my arm to knock me out...big needle-phobia here!))

 for how long did you have to eat non-solid foods?  And how soon do you feel well enough to go places?

they next day you're fine, just a little groggy and uncomfortable.  the day after i had my teeth out, i was forced to go to school to give a speech in public speaking.  it's do-able.
