I'm having similar issues with a dental abscess, tooth removed yesterday but jaw still very swollen and cannot put in my partials for a few more days. I have now lost a pound so far. I eat jello, yogurt, refried beans, cottage cheese, and for more protein tried Panera broccoli cheese soup with rotisserie chicken added then goes in my Vitamix. This is not fun at all. Next will try to puree my peaches, pears to keep down the waste. I plan to try tuna in the Vitamix as well. Open to any other ideas?

Sorry to hear about teeth, that's a bummer. You do need to keep up your strength !
So, other soft foods you might try would be things like pasta or ravioli. And well, you might have a small ice cream for a treat. after having three wisdom teeth out, it's okay to have a little ice cream or frozen yogurt.

When I had an impacted wisdom tooth removed, all I fancied eating was cooked peaches (skin removed), mashed potato, poached egg and Swiss Chard, plus white bread and butter with the crusts removed. The bread I 'chewed' with my tongue - LOL!
Speedy recovery! Kris

If you have a blender fruit and veggie smoothies taste great and have a lot of nutrition. Wishing you a fast recovery!
