A 4 oz glass of wine would be safe 8 hrs or more before.

No Problem with that. The local anesthesia will be fine with the alcohol the night before. Only issue would be if you were having I.V. sedation. Good Luck.

A glass of wine will no longer be in your system by the time you go to your appointment.
