Splint Removal

#1 Post by Traintracks19 » Sat Dec 30, 2017 2:51 pm

I’m 3 weeks post op on Tuesday, I will be getting my splint removed this day and my surgeon said I could eat whatever I wanted after this, after having double jaw surgery I’m wondering what types of foods I can resume eating after my splint is removed?

There's a tacked thread at the top of the surgery page; but talk to your Dr about what foods they say are ok.
Upper ceramics 5/21/14, Lower stainless 5/28/14
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15. Estimated time Jan 2016; still on at my 2 year anniversary...

Braces removed 7/20/18; upper and lower Hawley and Essix retainers with bonded lower too.

I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics! It's easier for the orthodontist; not better for the patient!!!
