How long after tooth extraction can I have coffee?
this is actually my 4th extraction but every other time i didn't drink coffee. (previous was #15, #8, and #9 (7,8,9,10 is a bridge)

Yesterday at 9:45 am i had number 18 extracted. Healing is going well it seems to have clotted well with no signs of dry socket. minimal post extraction pain or swelling all of which have subsided at this point.

i am wondering if it would be okay to have a cup of coffee now. i don't drink it very hot, with cream and artificial sugar or if i should wait if so how long?
Additional Details
i didnt ask for opinions about my sweetner. i used it under direction of a physician.

drink it with a straw and bypass the teeth

i truly have no idea! you probably need to ask your dentist!

Drink the coffee, but forget the sweetener.....that stuff will kill you!

I had it done this year and I used a piece of gauze when i drank coffee and took it out after I was done and then rinsed it with warm salt water and mine healed just fine

You can drink coffee as soon at the sedation has stopped working. Your nerves will indicate if the coffee it too hot or not. The Coffee itself doesn't infect. So there shouldn't be a problem. Best though is just to ask your dentist. He knows the complete details and only he can judge all effects. So asking the question here is dangerous. even my answer isn't 100% sure. There might be a special situation I don't know.

So again, ask your dentist. he knows.

It's ok to drink after 24 hrs. I just had my wisdoms pulled out this year and I dranked Cocoa after 24 hrs. to the hr.after the extration was done. It's BETTER yet after 48 hrs.

I would wait at least another day. Dry sockets can happen three days after the extraction. I had that happen to me , and I didn't drink anything hot or didn't even smoke. Caffeine does cause the blood vessels to dilate.

YOu are fine to drink coffee just as long as it is not too hot and you are not drinking it out of a straw. Good luck!

You can drink the coffee, just not too hot and be careful of the extraction site. You should NOT drink with a straw. The reason being is that when you drink through a straw you create negative pressure within your mouth which has a possibilty of dislodging the clot from the extraction site, possibily leading to dry socket. If you get a little coffee in your site it's not going to kill you. There are far worse bacteria floating in around your mouth already.

Should be okay. Just rinse mouth with water when you're done drinking the coffee. Enjoy.

Go ahead, just don't drink it through a straw and try not to drink extremely hot coffee. The big things are straws, smoking/tobacco, and carbonated beverages. Oh yeah, and no forceful spitting. Tea and coffee are okay.
