Hello doctor,

I got my four wisdom teeth removed a few days, and my girlfriend is coming to town tomorrow. Will suction through the mouth while kissing affect the healing process or cause any problems? Kindly help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

I would suggest avoiding any action which can lead to pressure in that area atleast for a week after the extraction. With kissing and other forms of oral sex, the chances of clot dislodgement increase and leads to further complications. So I would suggest you avoid such activities.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
