Got my wisdom teeth out 6 days ago can I smoke again?

Yes but …: The longer you can go without smoking the better and more quickly the site will heal. Now would be a excellent time to try and quit. The danger of beginning to smoke soon after and extraction can be the loss of the blood clot that forms in the extraction socket. A "dry socket" can be very slow to heal and very painful. After two days or so, most clots are stable enough to withstand light smoking. ...Read more

When after getting my wisdom teeth out can I smoke weed?

Can or should?: You can start right away, but first, I am not condoning its use now or ever. Secondly you run the risk of healing issues. Rather that asking dentists who know nothing about you, your medical and dental history and the circumstances concerning your extraction, you should ask the dentist who extracted the tooth.

I got my molar extracted 5 days ago but when i just brushed and i spit a lot of blood came out. dry socket coming? or am i past that stage?

I got my molar extracted 5 days ago but when i just brushed and i spit a lot of blood came out. dry socket coming? or am i past that stage?

Should be past: Dry sockets typically occur on days 3-5. You are at the end of the critical stage for dry socket occurring. A lot of blood can be a subjective term. You will definitely know if you have a dry socket because it will be very painful. The good news is that it does heal eventually. Hopefully you are not experiencing any intense pain as I am writing this. If so then call your dentist/surgeon. Good luck ...Read more
