Recipes & Dietary Ideas




If you're here, you're either thinking of having some type of dental work or oral surgery done, or are looking for after-care advice. First, let me make this perfectly clear:

I am NOT a dentist or oral surgeon, nor a dietician.
I am merely a person who's had lots of dental work done, and hopefully can offer some assistance, advice or ideas to you.

Below you'll find some recipe ideas for liquid diets. As I said, I'm not a dietician. These beverages were ones that I happened to enjoy while recuperating from various surgeries. Feel free to adapt them to your own special needs and desires.
