ive been so scared of dentists that
all my teeth rotted
a few at a time
and i finally got them all pulled recently

since then ive been having trouble swallowing
it feels like my teeth were a guide to where my food was
in my mouth
the food goes down before im ready and ive choked on it

do i have to go on a liquid diet?
ive been reading ubout it but i cant find enough options
i feel really stuck now

Hi zerosmiles:welcome:,

so sorry to read about your situation. It sounds like a lot changed in your mouth after the extractions and you're having difficulties adjusting. I was wondering will you be getting any dentures or implants to have teeth again?

All the best wishes

@zerosmiles I am sorry to hear about your situation. I think it would be best to have liquid diet and soft food for the first couple of days before you get used to it. Have a speedy recovery.

Try eating a liquid diet so that you can fulfill your nutritional requirements
