Medication and alcohol should never be mixed.

I’m not entirely sure that it is safe, but I’d have a couple drinks too!  I imagine since it was a local anesthetic (pretty sure i messed up the spelling on that one) that you’re fine.  If they gave you pain meds or some other kind injection, or something that put you out- then you’d have to pass on the drinks.

I was told no pain killers mixed with alcohol when I had knee surgery, so I wouldn’t do it.  But I don’t know if that applies to oral/local.  However, random note, sudafed is ok with alcohol according to my pharmacist.

Local anesthesia is starting to leave your system once it wears off. However, you may be given pain medication that is to be taken immediately afterward which should not be mixed with any alcohol. The best thing to do is contact the dentist (they may have an after hours number you can call with questions) to find out or play it safe and wait until all medication is out of your system, including any drugs you may have been prescribed.

@soonerpsych, I wonder why Sudafed is ok with alcohol but others are not. Seems odd since the same ingredients are in medications that should never be mixed with it. That is interesting though.

Definitely stick with virgin drinks until you get the ok from your dentist otherwise.
