Out with the Wisdom Teeth

Today I'm having two wisdom teeth out. People I've told have reacted with various responses from 'You'll be fine' to 'Yikes' (taking a step back as if it's contagious) to 'You poor thing'. 

So far these have been the tips.

1) Don't eat rice as it might get stuck inside the hole;
2) Eat ice-cream, mashed potato and soup;
3) Sleep on your back with your head elevated; 
4) Rinse with salty water after you eat;
5) Don't spit for the first 24 hours as it may stop the blood from clotting;

Have you got anything to add? 


  1. If you can stay away from narcotics, that might be wise. I had mine out years ago and was on Tylenol with codeine, which made me violently ill. Instead, I'd try extra strength Motrin or something that doesn't make you ill. All the best! I'm sure it will be fine!

    1. Thanks, Susan, that's good advice. I'll do my best! ;)

  2. It's done now, sweetie, and they don't grow back. Hugs.

  3. Smoothies?! MILKSHAKES.

    1. I've had a couple of banana milkshakes!! :)
