    How long after oral surgery can I smoke again?

    So to prevent any further delays in my departure for Iraq, I got 3 impacted wisdom teeth taken out today. Put to sleep, they cut pieces of my jaw and gums away, blah blah blah.. Other than some general soreness like I got into a fight at the bar, nothing stands out painwise. Got some pain meds (tylenol and hydrocone)

    When can I smoke again? It's sad that after having a month of no time to smoke, I now have plenty of time to

    2 weeks. don't do it sooner ... you could dislodge a clot and create a dry socket. dry socket sucks ass. seriously ... it's a very bad thing and increases recovery time even more. also, DO NOT drink from a straw or do anything else that could create suction.

    good luck. I started smoking cigars seriously a few weeks after I had some oral surgery.

    Whatever you get told, add a week or two onto it. I got an infection years ago after my wisdom teeth came out (ok, from cigarettes) but still, the pain from the infection was terrible!

    I agree- you don't want to mess it up. Add a week to what the good Doc says.

    (When I got 2 impacted wisdom teeth out, my doctor said 2 weeks to smoke. I did after 2.5 and was fine...)

    ok thansk for the advice.. I'll wait at least til I do the followup in a week and they take a look at the healing.. My big worry too is that I wont' be ready to ship out by the 21st if the healing hasn't done its thing

    Listen to the Professor. He is as right as rain. A dry socket is not something you want to deal with. Plus you'll enjoy the smoke a whole lot more if you are not dealing with additional pain.
    5 things that make life worth living; a good relationship with God, a good woman, good hlth, good friends, and a fine cigar.

    2 weeks minimum is a good rule. Oral surgeon should tell you when you can start using a straw and stuff again..... thats prolly when you can smoke

    So I was one of the idiots that did not listen so well. Fortunately I did not get dry sockets nor an infection. However, I did tear the stitches out where my wisdom teeth once were. It certainly delayed my healing process and the smoke was not even enjoyable after that.

    I quandry really is.... If I still had my wisdom teeth in, would I have been wise enough to not be such an idiot??? Hmmmm. I doubt it.

    Brother, if I were you I'd wait a seriously long time...not until my doc said the incisions were COMPLETELY healed.

    Open wounds would be prime breeding ground for cancer cells.
