The Best Food To Eat When You’ve Got a Toothache


So your mouth hurts. A toothache can be the absolute worst, and take over your life for a time. You don’t realize how important your teeth are to things like, breathing, talking, and eating until it hurts every time you do these things!

If you’re waiting for your major dental work, or just to see a doctor, there are only a few foods that you can eat without too much pain or discomfort.

If you’re interested in sweet, bananas are a great choice! Pudding and yogurt are also great choices. But sweet is easy – there are lots of soft, sweet food. What about savory?

Scrambled eggs are soft, savory, and full of protein – and can be spiced up with dry spices for any flavor profile. Cottage cheese is also soft, and great with some salt and fresh black pepper. Mashed potatoes, pan-fried tofu, rice, and refried beans are also filling, well-rounded foods that are soft, easy to eat, and will help you handle the pain until you can see your dentist.
