This pamphlet provides a list of signs that may mean you have swallowing problems. Safety tips to prevent aspiration (food or liquid going into your lungs) and choking are offered.

Abstract
It is important to eat well to help your body heal. When your jaws are wired or you have elastics in place, you will need to make a few changes to the foods you eat to get the nutrition your body needs. This pamphlet gives tips that can help. Topics include a meal plan, how to make eating easier, important things to do at home, how to prevent food poisoning, nutritional drinks, a sample menu, blending ideas and tips, smoothie-making tips, and ways to add calories and protein. Recipes are included. The French version of this pamphlet 1585, "Conseils nutritionnels après une chirurgie de la mâchoire," is also available.
