Follow orders: Follow the post-op instructions by your oral surgeon to reduce the risk of complication. Drinking alcohol after the surgery will prolong the bleeding and may be dangerous mixed with any narcotic pain medicine. You do not drink with a straw after oral surgery because it may pull out the blood clot protecting the extraction site. This will lead to a dry socket. No fun. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to drink out of a straw after 4 days of getting my wisdom teeth out?

Usually Yes: Unless your extraction procedure was unusually complicated and/or you are having a difficult time healing, you should be able to drink from a straw 4 days post extraction.

Its been 5 days after all 4 of my wisdom teeth have been removed - when can I drink from a straw?

Probably OK: If you have no outward signs of swelling or pain, it should not be a problem... But then again, since you are under the care of an oral surgeon, ask him/her so that no complications occur, since over the internet we cannot tell how difficult the extractions were or what type of wound you have. ...Read more

My both upper wisdom teeth have started breaking and it hurts a lot while i chew or have something cold to drink. Plz help?

And there is no easy solution to correct broken and painful teeth. To avoid infection, further damage to your teeth, and/or continued and worsening pain, see your dentist as soon as possible! ...Read more

Straw sucking OK now: Getting crazy thinking about the nonsensical dangers of post-op, sucking through a straw? Every time one swallows, a sucking action occurs! if i was really concerned about a dry socket, i would avoid swishing/rinsing and most importantly keep my oral bacteria count low by flossing daily, especially the back wall of the tooth that abuts the extraction. Also, take any prescribe meds. ...Read more
