I have been seeing dentists and orthodontists since I was a child. Thanks to having horrible teeth, I had to get a lot of work done to correct them. I guess I am used to it, but yeah it has never bothered me.

And since I am paying for dental insurance, you better believe I am going in for a cleaning twice a year.

It's not something I look forward to, but it is necessary for good health.

If anyone around has any advice, I'd appreciate it.

I can't get myself any soup or anything else until tomorrow, and I didn't have dinner. I could easily eat one of the millions of other things in the fridge, but it's all solid food. The internet is telling me that I can start eating solid food anywhere from 4 to 7 days from the surgery. It's been four, is it a good idea for me to just eat maybe a PB&J sandwich, or will this end badly?

I'd stay away from PB&J because it might pull your stitches.

I would too. Peanut butter is sticky. Do you like eggs? They are a soft food and have lots of protein.

i don't remember how long i waited until i ate solid food, but if i was told 4-7 days, i would've waited until the seven days just because i'm a paranoid fucker. not saying you have to, of course. i think it all depends on how you're feeling. any pain or anything? if not, i'd try eating solids, but something not sticky or nothing really crunchy to prevent the aforementioned stitch pulling or any sharp foods poking back there. a sandwich would be good, anything from grilled cheese to ham or whatever.

Stitches?? I thought they just pulled them out and put gauze in the holes? Yikes.

Can you try to eat with mostly your front teeth?

I hated the dentist because of a terrible experience I had, but my new dentist is awesome. I had a deep cleaning a few months ago and was not in any pain. Uncomfortable, but no pain. The last time I had a deep cleaning my whole mouth was sore for days.

A lot of it has to do with your dentist, and how well you tolerate pain.

Well, I ended up eating the sandwich without thinking about the potential harms of the peanut butter.

1) I'm with Khan, I'm too paranoid to eat anything solid until a week is up, so I was terrified the entire time I was eating it, to the point I only ate half.

2) I couldn't actually eat a whole bite of the sandwich, my mouth wouldn't open up wide enough, so I had to pull it apart.

3) I didn't get sutures, they just used gauze on mine, which actually has me even more scared.

The whole point is, back to soup we go . Thanks everyone for your advice.

I was back to eating solids the day after I had my wisdom teeth out. Surgeon said as long as I wasn't having pain I could eat what I want. Like others have said though stay away from anything sticky or sharp until your mouth heals.

My stitches disolved over time. I never had to get them removed.

last week I got one taken out, it was a tough one to deal with, lying horizontal, and only in last 3 months was I getting discomfort, due to a hole in it.

so under slight sedation, because Im so lightweight, yer man dealt with it, by cutting into four and having to drill into the jawbone in some way and I felt him do that, the pain was the worst I have ever felt, for almost a minute, I swear to fuk, I was gripping that chair really tightly.

but yeah, prob is I still get this rotten type smell and slight stink as the gap is revealing itself now that the stiches have dissolved. annoyin!

oh wow maddie, you weren't knocked out? maybe it's because i had all four of mine removed at once, but i was out. thank god as a couple were impacted like yours.

though i was awake for my gum surgery, god was that traumatising feeling them sawing off my gums. blech.

hope you're feeling better now! as for the smell, i'd suggest really rinsing your mouth. you probably already are but maybe if you do once more per day and/or apply more force somehow, it sounds like stuff's getting lodged in there. is the pain bad? maybe you need to switch to softer food or something. it sounds like dry sockets but not really if there's no pain.
