Why a Soft Food Diet Damages Your Teeth and Jaw
Posted on 5/15/2019 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
There are a lot of great tasty and healthy soft foods to enjoy Eating a bowl of ice cream or getting some healthy yogurt an seem like a treat. While soft foods are a good thing, some people rely on these foods too much. Following a diet that consists of just soft foods can hurt your teeth and jaw. Many people are not aware of why it is a bad idea to eat only soft foods and need to learn what the dangers are. Reasons for a Soft Food DietThere are reasons that a person would turn to a soft food diet. It is common after oral surgery for a person to only eat soft foods. This allows the body to heal from the surgery without causing more damage. Some people turn to a liquid diet to help them lose weight. In both cases, the soft food diet is temporary. Once a person has recovered from the surgery or lost the weight, they can return to a normal diet. What Can Happen? Some people continue with the soft food diet. They may decide that they don't want to risk something happening if they eat food that is not soft. They may have pain that does not go away and feel that soft food is the only relief they have. When they continue a soft food diet, they stop giving their jaw muscles the exercise they need to remain healthy. Soft food also does not put any pressure on the teeth. Without the pressure that comes from harder food, the teeth may not remain as healthy as they should. The same is true for the gums. A soft food diet puts the health of teeth, gum and jaws at risk. The body needs a varied diet to provide it with all the nutrition and health benefits it wants. While there are reasons for a soft food diet, there are not reasons to follow this for extended periods of time.

These activities could cause more problems after the surgery. Things to Avoid After an Oral SurgeryNo one wants to hear that they cannot do things they enjoy. The good thing is that after oral surgery, many people do not feel like doing anything. For the first day or two after oral surgery, it is best to engage in only light activities. You should take some time and get some rest. Over the course of a few days, the amount of activity you can do will increase and you can get back to normal within the week. Besides restricting yourself to light activities, there are some things to definitely avoid. Many oral surgeries use light or mild sedation These do not take long to wear off and a person can resume normal activities fairly quickly. To give the best chance to help the oral surgery site heal, it is best to slowly go back to a full schedule of activities. It is not a bad idea to take a few days off of work or school. Exercising can wait a few days. Anything that causes discomfort is best to avoid after surgery. You should use common sense and listen to your body when deciding what to do and not do after surgery For any questions you have regarding oral surgery or any other questions that our dental professionals can help you with, contact our offices....
