Why should you not drink carbonated drinks after getting a tooth extraction?

In brief: It is fine

Carbonation will not negatively effect the extraction site, due to ph or any ingredient: it is how one ingests the drink that matters: no straw, as suction (negative pressure) can dislodge a clot, leading to a "dry socket" a very painful problem.

In brief: Acidity

Carbonated drinks usually have a very low ph and can be irritating to the surgery site.
Also, i tell patients no carbonated drinks because they tend to drink them with a straw. The positive pressure in your mouth you create when drinking with a straw can dislodge the bloodclot leading to complications later.

In brief: No reason

There is no contraindication to drinking a carbonated drink as long as you are just swallowing it.
However, there is no nutritional value to it either.
