The Time Allowed For Smoking After Wisdom Teeth Surgery?
Good afternoon ma’am, sir. I would like to ask, for Graham teeth that are sewn after extraction. How long does it take to smoke again ???? Thank you, ma’am, doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Graham tooth extraction surgery can be an alternative solution for cavities, tooth abscesses, and other dental problems where the tooth is no longer possible to maintain. Graham tooth extraction surgery can also be done in the case of wisdom teeth that have impacted, which is buried deep in the structure of the gums or jaw, causing inflammation. This operation is done by making an incision in the gums (can also reach the bone) to remove the problematic teeth, then stitch it back. Postoperatively, the healing period generally lasts for 1 to 4 weeks. Healing here means that the wound on your gums has closed properly and no longer symptoms of severe inflammation, such as pain, swelling, redness, bleeding, and so on. As for your teeth, you can re-consume variations of food and drinks as usual generally requires a longer time, could be 1-3 months postoperatively. This condition may vary depending on the condition of your teeth before, your general health condition, also the care you undergo post surgery. Therefore, it is more appropriate if you consult your questions directly to the dentist who operated on you.
Smoking is known to inhibit the wound healing process. Not only that, smoking can also trigger severe inflammation. Because of this effect, if you smoke, then your graham tooth extraction surgery can take longer to heal and bleed easily again. Strong suction when you smoke can also cause blood clots that should fill your tooth extraction area back apart, and leave holes that are painful, give off a bad odor, and are more difficult to overcome (dry socket). Furthermore, smoking, even if it is done in your condition that is not out of operation, can also cause a variety of adverse effects on your health, such as increasing the risk of heart disease, hypertension, stroke, cancer, impotence, and so on.
Therefore, whenever it is, stop smoking, right? You can divert your desire to smoke by eating or eating healthy snacks. After your graham tooth extraction surgery has healed, you can also consume sugar-free gum so that your desire to smoke can be distracted. If it is difficult, do not hesitate to consult directly with a doctor or psychiatrist.
I hope this helps.
