    Well Marc is back home, good stuff. Glad I'm not paying to keep someone in jail that shouldn't be there.

So, I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday and fortunately I only had 3 to deal with. So after the "operation" I slept for a little while and everything has been just fine since. I've had no pain and no swelling. They gave me a little packet of info for post-surgery and it says that smokers (cigs obviously) should refrain from smoking for 7 days. My question is, since my recovery is going so well, do you think it would be okay for me to smoke weed in maybe 2-3 days from now? And does anyone have any personal experiences with smoking weed after having their wisdom teeth taken out? I've also heard from a friend of mine that smoking too soon after the operation can cause dry sockets.

I have smoken the same day after each of 3 extractions, no problems.
Use ice and water cooled smoke, draw softly, and keep your mouth moist (lots of sips of water). You'll be fine.

I have had past experience with this. I too had 3 wisdom teeth taken out. The dentist gave me a bottle of Oxycodone and as soon as I got into my dad's car to be driven home I took 3 times the dose on the bottle. After being dropped off at home my dad went out to do some shopping. He asked me if I wanted anything. My response was a BC Burger from Whitespot (a restaurant local to BC, Canada).
When he was gone I smoked a big fatty of some killer. When he got back I ate a burger only hours after my surgery. You don't have to tell me that this was extremely stupid to do.
I was fine until my prescription of Oxycodone ran out 2 days later. Then the intense pain started.
I would definitely NOT recommend smoking buds or cigarettes. Here is a good quote from a web page. Your friend is right about dry socket.

"the Heat from the Smoke causes Dry Socket, that is very painful and can lead to an infection in the gums and make things worse leading to more teeth being pulled, or worse having an abcess in your jaw, which is just plain out nasty.."
web page

The pain just isn't worth it man.

Well, I expect you'll be healed by now, but when I got my three wisdoms pulled, I toked almost immediately when I got in the door, with the cotton still in my mouth, heh. Had four teeth pulled in total, smoked pot shortly after both extractions, never had a problem with dry socket myself. YMMV.

I had all four out at the same time. I smoked the same day. I didn't have any problems. Just don't suck too hard or you might pull the stitches out. A vaporizer would be better. I even smoked cigs and had no prob. Also, Hydrocodone is GOOOOOOOOOOD!

Actually, I'm due for dental surgery in about a month. 3 wisdom teeth, and a bunch of other stuff.. I don't care as long as I am put out. I'm a bit worried about dry socket caused by smoking right after I get home, but I dont know.

I've heard it is the worst pain you could have in your mouth, heh.

I had all 4 out at once and toked that night. WITH Vicoprofens just rinse gently with salt water after you toke and don't suck hard on anything (heh heh or on anything hard) i mean like a tightly packed bong or pipe, or a milkshake cause you could pop the sutures (sp?) in your mouth.

other than that, toke on.

I got four of mine taken out in one shot, my mouth swelled up like a fucking chipmunk. This is Canada so i got some lousy T3's that did nothing except give me a stomach ache, so went to school the next day and smoked, no more pain

I also never got Dry socket, which is a good thing.

bubbles, I am in the same situation. I'll probably get held in for the rest of the day and possibly the night due to high blood pressure, then I will go home. It is very regular, almost every hospital visit I am stopped in the middle of whatever and put on a bed of my own.

anyways, my parents have a easy doctor who perscribes t3 like pez. They get those big ass 100-150 tablet bottles, always have one handy. Thanks for the personal experience everyone.

Your recovery may be going well but dry socket is when the clot falls out of the hole in your gum. Suction is one of the primary culprites too as you will notice your instructions indicate you shouldn't drink from a straw either. Have you a way to smoke without producing any suction? The bottom line is dry socket is no joke. Don't smoke for at least 5 days.

I was straight up with my dentist and told him I was a chronic. Having any smoke touch open wounds isn't good, and will usually slow down the healing process, however this is what we devised. Don't smoke anything the day of, for the first 3-5days bite down on gauze (make sure it doesn't touch the openings) so it blocks some of the smoke/tar. DO NOT smoke through a joint or suck on anything as you will pop the clots, leaving open nerves. Make a gravity bong, use ice, and make sure to only inhale and not to suck. Try to exhale out of your nose, it starts to burn after awhile though. Smoke can make your gums swell so I suggest Motrin and lots and lots and lots of water. Refrain from swishing it around, just let it flow around your gums and swallow.

Oh, indeed they are. I think I had those too. 5/500's, though. The weed helped the internal pain and the vicodin and ibuprofen helped the swelling that the smoke did to my gums.

heh I once had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out. He gave me a pile of gauze. After all was said and done I still had alot left which I used as pipe cleaners.

Btw he didn't give me any pain killers, and it was quite painful.
