Usually a dry socket will occur a little after the procedure is done. You might be in the healing stage and it is just really sore. Remember not to drink out of a straw. That will cause suction and the suction will make you lose your blood clot and that will cause a dry socket.

Is green or brown pus in the tooth socket normal after an extraction?

Most likely you have a "Dry Socket". which can occur when the the blood clot is disturbed or removed from the extraction site, or due to smoking after after having a tooth extracted. Call your dentist and describe your symptoms, most likely they will want you to be seen & treated. If indeed it is dry socket they will clean out the socket & place a medicated dressing inside the socket, which you should feel much better afterwards.Look up dry socket online a check to see if your symptoms match. see below"A dry socket, more formally referred to as alveolar osteitis by dentist, is a fairly common complication associated with tooth extractions. The formation of a dry socket involves a scenario where the blood clot which forms in the tooth's socket's after the extraction isn't properly retained (either it disintegrates by way of fibrinolysis or becomes dislodged). Since this blood clot is an important factor in protecting the boney socket and initiating the healing process, the healing of the extraction site is interrupted and becomes delayed."

What could happen to me if i smoked right after i got my wisdom teeth pulled?

The greatest danger is that you might develop what is called a 'dry socket'. This is where the blood clot in the socket is lost prematurely. The bone and nerves are left exposed to the outside environment and the socket becomes inflamed and extremely painful. Your dentist can easily manage this condition, but the time until you can get to your dentist will be excruciating. A dry socket can occur even if you don't smoke, but smoking is known to be a leading cause of the condition. Smoking also tends to slow down the healing process and therefore you are at greater risk for post-operative infections and other complications.

What if you cover your gum in tissue and smoke after an extraction?

It is not a good idea to smoke after a dental extraction, and especially not the first 24-hours, though it is better for more healing to occur than that before picking back up. If you are addicted, you might want to use a patch if you can get the patches. That is not the same as smoking, but that may help take the edge off of not smoking. Smoking after an extraction can help cause a painful condition called dry socket. That is when you lose the blood clot and healing slows. Some of the symptoms include moderate to severe pain, an accumulation of debris or necrotic tissue, redness, swelling, slowed healing, and exposed bone. So, in short, it is better to have nicotine cravings than it is to have pain of the socket which may sometimes radiate to an eye or ear, or may cause some glandular swelling in your throat as is common with a cold or flu.
