When Can I Drink Soda After Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Ask your dentist/OS: Possibly. But I would go by the post-op instructions of the your dentist/OS whom extracted the tooth/teeth. Make sure you do not drink through a straw...sucking in can actually affect healing and can possibly result in a dry socket. ...Read more
3-4 days: It is recommended not to drink from a straw for 3-4 days after a tooth extraction because that is the peak time when a dry socket can occur. ...Read more
Trick Question?: A patient once asked me if he could play the trombone after having a wisdom tooth removed, and I said yes after he recovered. He said, "Good, because I never could play it before". If you previously consumed alcohol, you should be safe to resume one week after surgery as long as you are not taking pain meds. ...Read more

Same thing: Same thing that would happen if you use recreational cocaine at any other time, it will do damage to your body and may eventually kill you. Codeine, however, in prescription medication, may help you feel better if you are still sore. However if you are still sore, return to the Surgeon for reevaluation. ...Read more
Yes: Without premedication, swelling can be common. With anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling perscription pre medications, these unpleasant effects of wisdom teeth removal can be managed quite comfortably. Discuss this with your treating dentist. ...Read more
Post op Bleeding: This varies on many factors- some medications effect blood clotting; difficulty of surgical removal, skill of surgeon & whether or not suturing closes flap completely or partially. Initial clotting should be up to about 10 minutes, some oozing may be expected for hours, irritation to clot from eating, brushing, flossing, tongue may induce slight bleeding even days later. Call your own dentist if? ...Read more
A day or so: Heavy bleeding should subside right away. Some oozing can occur for a day or two. If you are having heavy bleeding, you may wish to place a tea bag (lipton black tea) on the socket. The tannic acid will help control the bleeding. If it does not subside, see your oral surgeon. ...Read more
2-5 days: If you placed ice on the outside of your face right after the extractions, the selling normally peaks at 48 hours then should stabilize and slowly go down. If you did not use ice it could go on longer. ...Read more
Be Careful: First 1-3 days keep anything with pieces or bits in it out of the mouth. Prime example: chicken noodle soup! The pieces get in the extraction sit, dissolve/disrupt the clot and you get a dry socket. Broth, applesause, mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, yogurt without seeds/bits, smoothie (no berries), pudding, jello, etc. Work your way up to regular diet in the following days--be sensible. Good luck. ...Read more
Eat well: After wisdom tooth extraction, it is common that patients ask what are good / bad to eat. In general, it is best to select food that feels comfortable to healing tissue: avoid hard, crunchy food. If your socket is open, do not eat small particle food such as couscous/seeds as they get packed. Raw salmon should not be an issue. However, make sure you eat clean, high-quality food for quick healing. ...Read more
Maybe: It depends on how long after the extraction we are talking about. After a month +/- most things are closed up. ...Read more
A few days minimum: Usually it's about a week, but minimum 3-4 days. If you can quit smoking, of course it's the ideal choice. ...Read more
Headache: Do you normally get headaches? If you do, then I would not be overly concerned. If you do not normally get headaches, then I am somewhat concerned, and think you should tell the doctor who did the procedure. I imagine they gave you some pain meds. You could take a dose and see if that helps - along with some extra hydration. ...Read more
Evaluation: Pain should be investigated. By day 5 healing should result in gradually diminishing soreness. Please see the Dentist or Oral Surgeon who treated you to evaluate. ...Read more
