Hard food and wisdom teeth healing

I had my 2 left wisdom teeth pulled 6 weeks ago. I'm wondering if I can now safely eat hard foods like salad and chips on that side without damaging the healing? I just don't want to mess up the holes.

Should be no problem. Although there will still be depressions in your jaw where the teeth were, the gum itself will be healed and mature enough to eat on.

Go pig out .... :D
