How long does it take for the huge "holes" in your mouth to heal over after having wisdom teeth pulled?
I had two wisdom teeth pulled 6 days ago and I am afraid to eat anything but mashed potatoes and pudding, in fear of the "holes" getting food stuck in them. Can anyone help me out. I tried to eat blackened salmon for dinner tonight but was afraid it would get stuck. I feel like I am starving myself. Only serious answers please.

It takes a while for the holes to close up, but they shrink greatly within the next 2 weeks after surgery. You should be able to eat whole food by then (without worries) for sure.

I had mine pulled 25 years ago and I still have a whole in my bottom gum.

My holes took about three months to close up. It all depends on how your body responds and how fast it is going to heal. I recommend that you eat soft foods that don't have much of a chance to get stuck and always gargle with biotene or somehting your oral surgeon recommends. Try to do that for a few weeks and then gradually start eating more solid foods. You may want to invest in some protein shakes like designer whey and drink those for a while. They saved me some misery. Good luck.

I wouldn't worry about food getting stuck in the 'holes'. When I was younger I had teeth pulled left and right because they were decalcified. I had tons of holes, and ate with gusto just like any other child would.

The two teeth on the top, in the back, (not wisdom teeth though, they didn't come it yet) are also decalcified I believe. They have holes in the side, by the cheek. Slightly different scenario, but similar effect. Food does get in there, but it also comes right out when I drink some water or gently brush my teeth.

If you are really worried mush up whatever you want to eat, and as you put it in your mouth, swish in some water, that way any particles will be flushed. Brush your gums gently with a toothbrush afterwards for added security.

I can't say how long the holes will take to heal, but I can't imagine it being more than a month or two, and even that is stretching it.

Don't worry, after about a week they are healed enough to chew a little bit, but still eat soft stuff for like a month. Don't starve yourself though. Don't you like soup?

i would contact your dentist asap!!! he/she should of given you instructions on what to eat and not to eat(or drink).

make that call! they are the only ones that can help you!

stay strong!

I had all 4 of mine taken out 4 years ago. I didn't have any swelling or anything (I was lucky!) and I was able to eat regular foods right away, nothing super hard until the day after. One of mine still has a little hole now. Nothing has ever gotten stuck in it though.

Yes, it's a bit daunting to see these huge gaps left. But believe it or not, I have never had any trouble eating. Just eat careful, avoid that side of the mouth if you can, no problem if you can't. I guess the Dentist has given you a mouth wash and instructions as to what to do. Before you realise it, the gaps will close up, if your a healthy specimen, then you shouldn't have any problems. Ring the Dentist if unsure. Enjoy your food!!!!

Don't swish water in the sockets, nothing is going to get stuck in the holes and it will come out when you gently brush your teeth and let the water bathe over the areas. You can' t hurt any thing. Six days is long enough for the holes to have the clots in place they need to fill the gap. Dont starve, just avoid chewing way back there for a while. Salmon is the Best choice. It will not get stuck. If you're freaking, ask the dentist, but I've gone through this. Nothing is going to get stuck. Just don't lose the clot and cause a dry socket by rinsing vigorously. Eat!

After a week or two you should go ahead and start eating food regularly...the wholes are still going to be there for possibly 2-3 months depending, but they will gradually shrink away, but don't let the holes stop you from eating..the dentist should have given you something to keep the holes cleaned out while they are healing up.
