When Can You Eat Solid Food After Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Most dentists check your mouth during your teen years and keep track of your wisdom teeth. These teeth are in the back of your mouth and are the last adult teeth to emerge. Often, the jaw isn’t large enough to accommodate these teeth without overcrowding, so wisdom teeth are often scheduled for removal. This is an outpatient procedure and can take as little as an hour, but the recovery time can be up to two weeks.
