After a gum graft alcohol must be and should be avoided for a minimum of at least two days. Alcohol can cause blood to thin and blood vessels to react to the alcohol which can slow the healing process and cause your gums to bleed even more. Alcohol will and can burn when touching the surgery area.

While the gum graft is healing the tissue around your gums is really soft and is producing new blood vessels, and drinking alcohol hurts this procedure which makes the healing process take even longer making the pain even worse. To be safe wait at least a week or even two before consuming alcohol.

It is not ok. This is because Alcohol in general is very bad for you and should only be consumed by person over the age of 21. The procedure can be a long and enduring one

Wait at least 4/5 days before drinking. Alcohol will burn the surgical area, but if you really still do want to drink, I suggest straight shots
