Ask your dentist!

Don't make decisions like this on your own, you don't know what the heat will do to your mouth.

My daughter is an RDA and she said, No! Please keep the area free from coffee and any fizzy drinks. Do not smoke or use a straw. Drink only tepid drinks for a day or so.

Ask your dentist when you have the extraction done. I think you can have coffee shortly after, but perhaps only lukewarm, not hot. I had 4 wisdom teeth extracted a couple of years ago, and had soup for supper that night, and I am sure I had coffee the next morning. Coffee is no different from any other liquid, except perhaps water.

I don't personally know the answer to that. Why don't you call your doctor's office and ask them? I think you'll get the best advice/instruction that way.
