It’s not always easy eating as a vegan. While I am not personally a vegan, I still believe that even with dietary restrictions, it is possible to have healthy and yummy food options. Even after going through surgery. Typically after you go through oral surgery like wisdom teeth extraction or jaw surgery, you have to take some time off for recovery.
