Exclamation Diet for Hedgies with little to no teeth?

Hello! My name is Trinity! Nice to meet you all!

I have a 3 year old boy, his name is Coconut, and for the past 6 months or so he's had to have 2 surgeries for oral health issues, resulting in 18 teeth lost (The reasoning behind the lumps/infections are unknown). ): His last surgery was today, and I pick him back up in a few hours, and continue his recovery process with pain medication/antibiotics/wet food syringe until no longer available/needed. He's been a really tough little man, and I hate that it has come to this, twice of all reasons; I'm hoping to hear some sort of way I can catch/prevent this somehow.

Now the question is, do I change his normal diet? He's always been a bit spoiled and I grind his food up for him to a powder, and especially since his last surgery he seemed to have enjoyed it much more and went from 9oz to 11oz (much needed); but now that he will have more out, will that suffice? He doesn't seem the need to "chew" he just licks up the grinded food, or will I have to resort to some other mixture/food/preparing? Any mixes you recommend would be awesome/preperations! I use Blue Buffalo mixes, and he prefers them, but he's not particularly picky.

Any help is much needed! Thank you so much!

What you do now sounds like it's working pretty well for you both. There's some more ideas for soft diets here -
