What to eat after wisdom teeth removal

The removal of wisdom teeth, also called third molars, is one of the most common surgical procedures in the US. We spend an estimated $3 billion a year having 10 million wisdom teeth taken out, according to the American Public Health Association. This can come with some degree of discomfort, so if you’re wondering what to eat after wisdom teeth removal, you’ve come to the right place.

Most people have four wisdom teeth – so-called because they are the last to come through, usually between ages 17 and 21. By this time you should already have 28 adult teeth in place, so there often isn’t enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow properly.
