AnswerYou should wait for 3 - 4 days or until your dentist checks you again (whichever comes first.) Having any tooth pulled (wisdom teeth are difficult at best) tears the gums and your dentist has probably packed the gum down by the bone and stitched each one. If you are on pain killers DON'T DRINK! Alcohol will make you bleed more. If you don't have much pain and you aren't on pain killers then 2 days after the pullings your dentists may say it is okay to drink alcohol. Give the gums a little time to heal.

Kinda-sorta, but not really. Gobbling down huge amounts of water would "work", but if you're pulled over, they wouldn't let you drink enough to affect the result, even if you did manage to drink enough w/o getting sick. The only surefire effective way is: stop drinking alcohol, then wait.
