I had one upper wisdom tooth removed at my dentists office two days ago. It was fairly simple straight pull extraction he did in his office. I have no swelling, virtually no pain and am not on any painkillers whatsoever. My question is I want to enjoy a couple glasses of wine with my dinner but my dentist said not to drink any alcohol. I have read to wait several days as it could cause the blood clot to dissinegrate and i could get a dry socket. I have had one before when my lower tooth was removed, of course that was a very difficult extraction, the surgeon had to cut it up into pieces and left a big hole. What is your advice?
