It is not recommended to smoke, marijuana or tobacco, after having any type of surgery in your mouth that involves having a tooth extracted. After a dentist removes the tooth you will be left with a circular hole in the bone of your jaw, as your body begins to heal itself a small blood clot will form in this hole.
The suction from smoking can cause a vacuum effect on the hole where the root was and the newly formed blood clot can become dislodged. This is how dry socket occurs and it is a very painful and slow healing process.
You may be tempted to find ways around the suction part of smoking if you are desperate enough. Edibles as well as some creative ideas with straws and gravity bongs might be a safer alternative to a water bong or a joint. However there is some debate as to weather or not THC in your blood stream can effect the healing process. If you do smoke, be sure to keep the extraction point wet and covered with gauze while you smoke to lessen the effect on the area.
48 to 72 hours after the surgery is what most people agree is a safe amount of time to wait before smoking after having a tooth pulled, maybe longer if it is a wisdom tooth that had to be have the gums stitched, or multiple pulled at once. But some cases of dry socket can happen as many as 5 days after a surgery.
Good Luck and happy healing.
Do not smoke after having your wisdom teeth extracted. The sockets could become infected, and at the very least, it will slow the healing process.
* No, there should be no problem, but after you finish smoking use a good antibacterial mouth wash. What is the most important is not to smoke after you have extracted your wisdom teeth for at least 48 hours. == ==
It's never OK to smoke a cigarette.
You can pack the site with moist gauze, bite down and then inhale...this will keep the clot in the tooth. You must use moist gauze for each smoke for 3 days, or 8 days for a wisdom tooth. How do I know? I am a smoker and have had two teeth pulled this month alone on separate occasions. If you keep the hole covered with the moist gauze, your clot will stay where it needs to be :)
Now that would not be wise. Your not supposed to smoke anything for at least a week after getting your wisdom teeth pulled out.
It takes 6 months for you to smoke them cigars.
i wouldn't smoke at all.
you can smoke weed right after if you want. just hit it through your nose. sounds strange but helps with the pain
The amount of time that you have to wait to begin smoking again after the removal of a wisdom tooth is about five days to a week. Smoking too soon after an extraction can lead to a very painful infection called dry socket. It is best to ask your dentist.
It's just plane bad to smoke period.
Why wouldn't you? not sure what part of removing the teeth your referring to that could connect to toking so cant really answer your question.
what in the hell... ?
you get hungry.
in 3 years time
Use gauze pads or tea bags. Do not smoke. If after a day it is still bleeding, call your dentist.
When it is the area is fully healed around the end of week 2 is a good time as long as there is no pain, no swelling, your stitches are out and you've had a check up.
Maybe my answer is more of an opinion, but NO, you should not smoke pot, At All... However, if you do smoke anything, to avoid getting dry sockets, you should not after having surgery on your wisdom teeth, at least not within 48 to 72 hours.
Smoking is always horrible for your health. If in fact your wisdom teeth have been extracted, they may finally be distanced from the smoke and will not become any yellower, or stained. Do your body a favor, stop smoking as soon as you can. There are excellent drugs to help with your cravings, and your addiction. About 4000 people a year die in America from heroin overdoses, but nearly 400,000 die from smoking related deaths. Many of them die from lung cancer, which I have recently seen take one of my closest friends. You don't want that, trust me.
It is never safe to smoke ! Each cigarette is a nail in your coffin !
I just had two teeth pulled and my denist said 4 days till I can smoke
NO, you moron you should not even be smoking that in the first place what is wrong with you, Do you know how bad that stuff is for you? Oh and back to the question if you smoke with an infection you should not smoke because it will make it worse. Try to some hot water and slat in your mouth.
