Can I drink and smoke after wisdom tooth extraction?

No smoking

Dental
Do not smoke after wisdom tooth extraction. You increase the chance of very painful dry socket. Follow the directions from the dentist or oral surgeon that did the extraction. Eat a soft diet, drinking is ok but avoid alcohol while taking pain medications.

How long until I can eat or drink after a tooth extraction?

Immediately

Tooth_extraction
If you are prescribed pain medication to take postoperatively, you should eat and/or drink before taking any pain medication to avoid the potential for nausea. You may wish to start out with soft food and advance as tolerated. If your question pertains to drinking alcoholic beverages after the extraction, do not take any pain medication and consume alcoholic beverages at the same time.

Can I drink coffee five hours after a tooth extraction and with new partial dentures?

Be careful

Head-teeth
After a tooth extraction be careful eating and drinking liquids. The extraction site needs to heal properly and be left undisturbed and as clear of debris. Consult your dentist to determine what is allowable under your situation.

You can drink within hours after a tooth extraction. However avoid the use of a straw for a few days to prevent any dry socket.

I'm wondering how long after a tooth extraction can I eat/drink cold things?

After numbness is

Head-teeth
After numbness is gone and you get your feeling back, it is good to have something cold. Cold food keeps the tissue from swelling, and keeps the blood vessels small to minimize bleeding. You may also find cold food is easier to eat than hot/warm food during healing. h

Why exactly are you not supposed to drink with a straw after a tooth extraction?

Clot dislodgment

Open-uri20130320-30914-8g11lk
The answer given by another doctor is not quite accurate, as it states it will cause bleeding from the root. I understand what the person is thinking I suppose, but extraction of a tooth means the crown and the root. The reason is: sucking pressure can easily dislodge a recent clot, thereby exposing alveolar bone to the oral environment, it is called a DRY SOCKET. Clot loss due to suction.
