Need to smoke after extraction

Posted on Saturday, Dec. 26th 2009 11:46 AM by Dental Plan Review in Extractions, Oral Surgery, Root Canals 4 Comments »

Needing a cigarette

I just had a molar pulled about a few hours ago.   I am really in need of a cigarette.  I and heard of dry socket but do I need to worry wout it if I had a root canal in that too before they pulled it.  After all their is no nerve.  So where would I have any pain from?

  1. Greg Hills Says:

    Having a root canal in a tooth you had to extract makes no difference, an extracted tooth has no root either. It is the extraction site that is left open until your gums heal. Dry socket exposes your bone and is very painful. You should not smoke for a few days as advise by your dentist, or you do run the risk of getting dry socket.

    Greg is right that having the root canal is completely different thing from the extraction. You want to do your best and not smoke. It will only be for a few days.

    Call I can say is fight the need. If you have to have a smoke regardless of what may happen (and lets face facts dry socket is the least of your health worries if you are smoking)then try not to suck hard on the cigarette.

    I am not a smoker myself so I have little understanding of the need to smoke when knowing that doing so could be harmful to my health.

    However you need to make the choice that you can live with. You now at this point know that by smoking after an extraction can cause you to have dry socket as well as slow down the healing process of your gums. I would suggest not smoking all together but it is up to you to get though it.
