    The dentist should have briefed you on not what to do... but since you are asking I guess he did not.

    The things I have been told are to not chew hard foods such as chips or nuts. Do not chew gum, do not smoke, do not drink coffee or other sugary/caffeinated drinks, do not drink through a straw, do not whistle or suck on objects such as candies or ice popsicles...

    Those are the things I remember being told NOT to do within the first 24 hours after having your teeth removed. If you are really concerned you should consult your dentist and ask; a phone call should be easy enough.
