|A letter on coronavirus awareness from Cameo Dental Specialists|

|Oral surgery is not always the most pleasant experience. Although there are plenty of ways to make the actual surgery comfortable for you, the time before the surgery and he time after the surgery can be very difficult.
The key to controlling these times is preparation. Preparing before the surgery means following the instructions provided and finding ways to relax.
After the surgery a person needs to know how to care for the surgical site and the rest of the mouth, teeth and gums and they need to know what to avoid. Your diet is usually restricted after surgery. It is a good idea to prepare for this by having specific foods on hand that make recovery easier.
More than Just Soft
The idea of eating soft foods after oral surgery makes sense. Softer foods are easier to chew and digest. But it is not enough to just say eat soft foods. You can also find soft foods that provide extra protein, vitamins and minerals to help with your recovery. Having these on hand when you are going to have oral surgery is a very good idea.
Recovery from oral surgery does not mean you have to go hungry or that you cannot find foods you like. If you plan ahead and get food that is easy to eat, high in protein, vitamins and minerals, you can help speed up your recovery. The key is to plan ahead because this is not something you will want to do after you have the oral surgery.
