Postop alcohol: This is a surprisingly common questions. You should not drink alcohol if you're taking any narcotic pain medicine. Also, you should avoid any carbonated beverages such as beer for at least a week after wisdom tooth surgery. Otherwise, moderate alcohol consumption doesn't interfere with wound healing.
