Hello I am very nervous tomorrow I will have 13 teeth pulled and wake up with full top denture. Ih pulled and wake up with full top denture. I have not even had the bottom partial denture made yet but most of the bottom front remain. I'm afraid of the whole process to be honest but also very scared that my eating disorder is going to re surface. I'm anorexic in recovery almost one year but if I start not eating again it will resurface. How long does it take before I will eat again. I still hate food and usually live on Greek yogurt n bananas will I be able to eat them. Thanks so much

You will be able to eat yogurt, bananas (If you mash them up or thinly slice). You might also want to stock up on soups, puddings, jello, applesauce and mashed potatoes. The pain is not bad. I had full tops and bottoms done (I still can't wear my bottoms-but I am doing okay with the top) on 3/22 with 19 extractions. It will be a huge adjustment. The main thing is don't leave that office if they don't feel right. Keep us updated.

As long as you can feel your face and make sure that you do a salt water rinse afterwards, you should be able to enjoy a creamy Greek yogurt tomorrow evening.

Congrats on your enormous success! You have already kicked some major butt by being in recovery this long!! Having the teeth pulled tomorrow will be a breeze in comparison!

Like Lizzy said, be sure to cut the banana up thin and you'll be fine!

Follow the Dr's orders and don't be afraid of the pain killers.

Please let us know how you come out!

Best of luck!

Hello! I lived off yogurt and bananas the first few weeks of my extractions. Seems like yesterday I got them pulled. Had 27 teeth pulled. You'll b fine. Stick to the yogurt and when u eat bananas just cut them in small pieces.

You can "eat" anything if you cut it small enough! Just choose foods where chewing is optional. I had oatmeal, eggs, biscuits and gravy, with sausage crumbled finely in the gravy, sloppy joes, hamburger helper... couldn't bite the banana, but mashed it up with a fork and no problem.

I'm 2 weeks today!! I woke up with temps and it was so much better than I imagined. I haven't had pain but as a vegetarian I wasn't getting enough calories. I started soft things the next day and moved to vegan ramen...I'm now eating veggie chicken nuggets. You will know when your ready. Just make sure you're getting enough nutrients and good luck! I'm 30 and finally feel alive again
