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.

Safest way to smoke after wisdom teeth?

you shouldn't smoke directly after having wisdom tooth extraction...could dislodge an essential clot...If you must smoke, remember the gauze they put in your mouth over the extraction? LEAVE IT THERE, bite down and then have your smoke, your inhalation will not disrupt the clot because it is protected by the gauze that is snug to the extraction site. You need to use gauze each time you smoke, I would recommend making sure it is moist, fold it and keep it tight up in the spot. Worked for every extraction I have ever had. :))
