When can you smoke after wisdom tooth extraction?

It's wise to wait a couple of days even if the dentist has put in a couple of stitches to close the hole the extraction made. Gargle with salt water and try to keep the area clean. If you can't handle two days then have a smoke on occasion and then rinse your mouth out with warm water and salt, spit out.
