For the first three days after laser therapy, it is best to stick to a liquid diet to allow healing. This includes anything that can be put in a blender and consumed. For the first 24 hours after surgery, you may want to follow a liquid or soft food diet. Avoid spicy foods and things like French fries, popcorn, and pretzels to prevent irritating the surgery site.
Additionally, do not use straws for the next few days to avoid suction. Carefully avoid chewing food in the area where the laser was used to avoid interfering with the healing process. In periodontal laser therapy, the hygienist uses a laser to access and remove inflamed gingival tissue from around the root of the tooth.
