Foods to Eat After a Root Canal
Root canals require proper maintenance after getting home; it's important to eat the right food so that you don't damage or break your previously repaired tooth and lead to further complications.
It is very important to start with soft foods. Your dentist in Springfield, MO has a few suggestions to read through:
Creamy foods are very easy to eat because they do not require chewing. Yogurt, eggs, ice cream, and milkshakes are good after your root canal.
Fruits are soft, vibrant, smell great. What's not to love? Consider making a smoothie if some fruit skins are a little tough.
Every living thing requires carbs, including you. There are many non-processed versions of carbs, maybe try some cooked steel-cut oats or a rice dish after a root canal procedure.
Vegetables should never be neglected even after root canal surgery. Soft veggies that have been cooked, mashed, etc. support overall wellness.
