Two Delicious Recipes For After Dental Implant Surgery

Two Delicious Recipes For After Dental Implant Surgery
Posted on 08/14/2017

Dr. Goldberg sees patients daily getting dental implants in Monroe Township NJ. Getting dental implants means after surgery your gums are going to need time to heal. During this period you will need to take some extra precautions to ensure your gums heal properly, and your dental implant is securely seated in its new position. While you recover from dental implant surgery, you will only be able to eat soft, cold or slightly warm foods. To help encourage our patients to stick to this regime while their healing from dental implant surgery, we have put together a couple of recipes that are perfect to eat after dental implant surgery.

Delicious and cold Gazpacho

Most soups are perfect for after your dental implant surgery. The tricky part is making sure they’re not too hot, the colder, the better in fact. For that reason, we have decided to go with gazpacho as our first recipe. What better soup to enjoy cold than one that’s meant to be cold! For this gazpacho recipe brought to you by Chef Mommy, you will need:

  • 8 large, ripe tomatoes, chopped (peel and remove the seeds)
  • 1 ¾ cups tomato juice
  • 1 English cucumber, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ large red onion, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • Basil, chiffonade

To prepare the gazpacho, add all the ingredients to a large bowl if you are using an emersion blender or a standard blender and combine to your desired consistency. If you are making this recipe because you just had dental surgery, we do suggest to finely blend all the ingredients and limit the salt, Worcestershire, and black pepper. Once combined, cover your soup with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until cold. Before serving, lightly season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with basil.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Quiche is a perfect breakfast to have after receiving your dental implant in Monroe Township, NJ. It’s soft and delicious, even cold! Plus, this crustless spinach quiche from She Loves Biscotti only takes around 20 minutes to make and another 40 to cook! To get started you will need:

  • 1 tbsp, olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 10oz. fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) spinach
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups shredded cheese (whichever you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Once you have all your ingredients ready to go, then:

  1. Spray a 10-inch pie pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Combine eggs, cheese, herbs, and spices. Set aside for later.
  3. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  4. Heat olive oil over medium-heat in a large skillet.
  5. Add garlic and let sweat until aromatic (appx. 1 minute.)
  6. Add onions and cook until soft.
  7. Add spinach and cook until wilted and soft.
  8. Remove the spinach, onion, and garlic mixture from the skillet and let cool for a few minutes.
  9. Combine spinach and cheese mixtures.
  10. Pour combined mixtures into prepared pie plate.
  11. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the mixture has set.

If you're not recovering from dental implant surgery, you can enjoy your quiche as soon as it’s cooled down a little but if you are recovering, let it cool down until it’s just barely warm or place inside your fridge until cold to enjoy.
