Dental Health Care, Tooth extraction and smoking how long do you have to wait

Friday, Jun. 25th 2010 11:07 AM

I just had four teeth pulled and I am a smoker.  I know I am not allowed to smoke right after having my teeth pulled, but I forgot to find out for how long.  I can go a day but do I have to wait much longer then a day? I smoke almost with out thinking so it would be hard for me to just stop for a long period of time.  Can you please advise.

Dental Health Care, Tooth extraction and smoking how long do you have to wait

    Well each dentist is different some say a day some may say a few day to a week depending on the tooth extraction and or extractions in your case.

    I say off had since you did have four teeth pulled and you need to give you gums time to heal to try and put off smoking for as long as you can at least two to three days.

    However call your dentist back up and see what they tell you.

    Lets face it if you stated you smoke without even thinking about it regardless of how long you should not smoke you probably will smoke anyway.

    Try not sucking hard do really light puffs. That may help you a little. Otherwise I wish you well dry socket. is not fun

    Not a good idea to smoke for at least three days after having a tooth extraction. Smoking to soon after having a tooth pull can cause you to have a very painful case of dry socket. Do your best to quit for a few days.

    Heck I smoked right after having my wisdom teeth pulled. Nothing happen to me. Just take easy puffs. Non-smokers will not understand and tell you to stop for days when it is not really all that necessary. Anyway just my opinion on that.
