I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted on Wednesday (Jan 5). Three were fully impacted and 1 was starting to come out. My mouth, bottom lip, and chin were numb for the first 24 hours, and I barely felt anything even after it wore off. The most pain was a slight discomfort from opening my mouth. However, I am still eating a few select foods such as applesauce, pudding, ice cream, broth, etc. The reason for this is because I don't want to have something mess up the recovery process. Does anyone know how long it typically takes till I will be able to eat regularly again (like I did the days prior to surgery). Also, do you know of any other foods I may be able to eat at this time? As I said, it has been about 5 days and I am in no pain. My stitches are still there, and I still can't open my mouth as much as before.
