Are you thinking of having an implant treatment?

After oral or maxillofacial surgery, it is very important to maintain an adequate diet for proper wound healing. Obviously, eating can be very complicated in cases of complete oral surgery and complex cases, because our mouth is weakened and sore. At Crooke and Laguna we distinguish ourselves by performing surgeries with a minimally invasive method, but even so, you should always take it easy during recovery.

In this post we give you some tips and recipes so you can focus only on resting after your surgery.

First of all, it is essential to eat everything and in a balanced way. Just after surgery, it is these nutrients that will make healing and scarring of the operated area possible. When you are in a recovery process, it is necessary to eat soft or liquid foods, in the form of purees and broths. These do not involve much effort when chewing and avoid the rubbing of hard things against the post-surgery wound.

What are therefore the most suitable foods?

It is best that you consider having a soft or liquid diet during the days following the intervention. We recommend that on the first and second days you eat foods rich in protein, such as eggs and even meat (as long as it is pureed). Cold foods will also help to reduce possible swelling. Things like Andalusian gazpacho, ice cream and fruit juices (but always without seeds!) are a perfect choice.

If we talk about essential foods to eat after surgery, the aforementioned fruit juice and milk must be present, as they are two of the most suitable liquids for us to have the nutrients and vitamins after our dental implant treatment.

From the third day, you can also choose to eat legumes, other vegetables and soups, always mashed, so that our mouth does not make the effort to chew them and swallow them easily.

Yogurts are a very good option to combine with your post-surgery diet, and since they are cold, they provide relief after a treatment with dental implants. They also have many probiotics that favor intestinal transit and protect us from possible alterations caused by post-surgery medication.

After about 4-5 days after your surgery with Crooke & Laguna, your mouth will be ready to eat again in a completely normal way, taking into account if the surgery area with dental implants has healed well.

Here are some recipes with easy and delicious ideas, so that after your implant treatment, you only have to worry about resting.
