    ok well i had my bottom wisdom teeth out like 2 years ago while my top 2 hid inside of my gums.

    i just got my top 2 out a couple of hours ago and i was told by the dentist lady that once i stop bleeding and im fit to eat, i can eat whatever.

    so....basically...im stitched up and i know i should be smart and eat soft foods to begin for a couple of days, like soup for instance.

    is it ok to have chicken noodle soup? im more interested if its okay to eat the noodles or should i stick to only brothe? or should i ONLY eat/drink cold liquids/foods?

    Noodles should be fine. I ate a soft taco from Taco Bell 6 hours after I got 2 of mine out. Took me 45 minutes to eat 2 soft tacos, lol. Just be sure to keep the cavity clean, and do everything in your power to avoid the dreaded dry socket.

    I get my other 2 pulled on January 16th.

    Whatever you do, Don't Drink from a straw!!!!!

    Eeeek!

    I had all 4 taken out at once!

    Thank god my aunt is my dentist, she hooked my up with some happy pills!

    If it weren't for them, I would have died!

    So yea, seriously-

    Don't Use Straws and Try not to eat!

    If you do eat, only eat bland room temperature, soft foods, preferably soup!

    Booooooo!
    I feel for you. Had all four of mine out years ago under General.....three of them were impacted. Not nice.

    I didn't really eat for a few days, but when I did it was smooth foods only. My dentist advised nothing with bits really....nothing that can get stuck in the wounds/stitches.

    As nasty as it is, keep up the salt-water rinses too...especially after food. It'll help you heal up.

    Good luck, get well.
    Hope you like soup and ice-cream?!

    As stated above, do not use a straw (dry socket results). Salt water rinse helps. I do not know how I did it, but I downed a couple of shots of Jim Beam before bed. Try at your own risk.
