On March 18th we published a blog post : Post dental implant nutrition. Since we have several emails asking us if we could go into further detail about this " soft foods" diet. For many, this brings imagery of sipping on a straw and eating baby food. That simply is not true. In our fast pace world many of us eat out, so how can you still eat out and what can you eat
after dental implants?
How many of us like Italian food? It happens to be many people's favorite food and offers a lot in the way of a soft food diet. Dished like lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, spaghetti ( without the meatballs) are just a few great eats that your can have. If you like fish, soft fish like cod and trout are great to have. Other dishes such as mashed potatoes, omelets, cream of wheat, grits, oatmeal and even pancakes are great to have after implant surgery.
Of corse, as with any diet, you need to watch your caloric intake. So it's not recommended to just sit there and eat chocolate ice-cream all day for six weeks. Just keep a reasonable watch on what you eat. We do recommend eating low or non fat yogurt and drinking protean shakes such as Ensure. We also recommend you take a multivitamin that contains calcium, magnesium and zinc.
We hope this helps any fears of what can you eat after dental implant surgery. If you have any questions, you can always contact us at email@example.com or 713-850-9699.
Many have heard of the story on Good Morning America about the man who dies getting his wisdom teeth pulled.
" The family of a 24-year-old California man who died unexpectedly after having had his wisdom teeth removed is questioning the medical care he received during the routine oral procedure.
After the surgery last month Marek Lapinski, a software developer from San Diego, experienced complications. According to the patient care report released by American Medical Response, Lapinski woke up coughing during the procedure and was given the powerful anesthetic propofol.
But his condition quickly deteriorated and he was transferred to a hospital, where he died three days later. His family and friends have questioned the treatment he received from Dr. Steven Paul, an oral surgeon in Temecula, Calif. " ( http://gma.yahoo.com/man-dies-wisdom-teeth-removed-201504759.html )
We at Progressive Dental wanted to assure those who might be questioning getting an extraction that this is an isolated event. Furthermore, we do not use the powerful anesthetic propofol while doing extractions or any other sort of procedure.
We can understand however that this could raise some questions about how extractions work, what anesthetic we use and other questions.That is why we felt the need to address this issue in the news and any concerns you might have. Feel free to contact us with any questions you have firstname.lastname@example.org
