Is ice cream good after wisdom tooth extraction?

Wisdom teeth removal is somewhat famously known as ‘that surgery where you get to eat ice cream afterwards’. Because so many people know stories about people getting to eat ice cream after their surgery, a common question for our dentists is: is ice cream really good for you after wisdom tooth extraction? The answer is that yes, soft foods like ice cream and yogurt are good to eat after wisdom tooth removal.


This is because after an oral surgery like wisdom tooth extraction, your gums will be swollen and need to heal. During this time after the procedure, it is best to avoid solid foods which can cause pain and delay the healing process. Smoothies and milkshakes, ice cream and yogurt, as well as other soft foods are good to eat during this time. The cold temperature of ice cream can also feel good on your swollen gums. So yes, eat away after your procedure and enjoy the excuse to chow down on ice cream and smoothies! Make sure to note though, that when enjoying a smoothie after your procedure you should avoid using a straw. In some rare cases straws can potentially cause dry socket. Feel free to enjoy as many smoothies as you like, just avoid straws for a short while after your wisdom teeth come out.
