Smoking with braces on.

Smoker with braces

I have had braces now for over two years.  Before I can have the braces removed I needed two teeth pulled.  Even though I pulled the teeth over a week ago my gums are still not healing.  Because the holes have not closed the orthodontic will not remove my braces.  I am wondering are my gums not healing good because I am a smoker?  I am trying to quit now so will it help heal any faster if I am not smoking.  I really want to have my braces off as soon as possible

    Well I am not sure if you got the aftercare instructions that most dentist give out after a tooth extraction. However, it will normally state not to smoke at least two to three day after having the tooth removed. Smoking may cause dry socket.

    I have also read (not sure what site) that smoking can slow down any healing process. I am not 100% sure about the truth in that but it does seems likely.

    I will say that I wish you well and hope that you are able to quite like you want. By far just quitting smoking will be a good thing.

    Stopping the smoking is a great idea and wish you well with quitting. Will it help your current issue with your teeth? I sorry I do not know, however it could not hurt it any.

    Well smoking is certainly not good for your oral health. Some of the side effect of smoking in regards to oral health would be high risk of gum disease, increase in plaque, bone and tooth loss and lets not forgot Oral Cancer.

    By the way Oral Cancer has one of the highest death rate and that 75% percent of the people who are diagnosed with oral cancer are nicotine users.

    So when you ask if smoking is part of your problem with healing I would hazard a good guess that it is. Will quitting help you heal any faster? I am not sure if you will see rapid results and heal any faster.

    But I am sure you can see the benefits of quitting smoking goes way beyond just getting your braces off sooner.
