And in this blog, we are now going to discuss the list of soft and healthy foods you can intake after undergoing dental implant procedure.

First 24 Hours

For the first 24hrs after your surgery, your jaw will need some break. Therefore, smoothies, jelly/puddings, and cold veg soups will be the most beneficial for your healing process. It is extremely important to refrain from using a straw, as the sucking cause excess strain, which ultimately can delay the healing process.
