soft diet frozen yogurt

A variety of nutritious foods may be consumed following dental surgical procedures and Dr. Tom Conner’s suggestion to follow a soft diet.

A soft diet is made up of foods that are soft and easy to chew and swallow.

Foods are softened by several methods such as cooking, blending or mashing.

All cooked or canned fruits and vegetables are permitted with a soft diet.

Grains such as pasta, breads, crackers and rice may also be consumed, but they must be soft in texture.

Moist and tender meats grounded are acceptable in a soft diet.

Other recommended high-protein foods include eggs, creamy peanut butter and low-fat dairy products.

A variety of desserts such as custards, puddings, frozen yogurt, sherbet and smooth ice cream can be enjoyed also.

Adequate food and liquid intake following surgery is most important.

If you find that eating solid soft foods is too difficult you may supplement your diet with liquids such as Carnation, Instant Breakfast, Ensure, or any other meal substitute products.

Questions? Dr. Conner and his team are here for you. Contact us with any questions or concerns.

Another happy smile...

"I am very appreciative of the dental work Dr. Conner and his staff did for me. My 50th birthday present to myself was to make over my smile and now I feel good about myself everyday when I look in the mirror. Every time someone asks me about the changes in my smile I tell them to go see Dr.Conner over on Rt 10. I always recommend Dr. Conner to my family and friends."
