i got all four wisdom teeth removed 8 days ago (not impacted or anything bad) and ive been off vicodin for about 4 days. im still in pain but its tolerable. one bottom tooth is bothering me but otherwise im okay. i havent been able to get in touch with my oral surgeon so im afraid to eat normal foods but i really want to, and id like to know if drinking is okay as soon as 10 days post-op if im only experiencing mild discomfort. i really need an answer ASAP. thanks!

  • if you are not taking any madicine and there is no pain and swelling then you can take normal food but do maintain the oral hygeine. Keep doing warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day and drinking is o.k. but again if you are not taking any meds.
