When Can I Smoke After Pulling My Teeth?
I want to ask, right about 3 weeks ago I pulled my teeth, and now it’s healed before I was declared healed, I can’t smoke and drink hot drinks, now it’s cured, and it’s already covered in scrapings, can I drink it hot and smoke again?
Thank you for the question.
After tooth extraction, the healing period can be short, it can also be slow, depending on what teeth have been removed, how the condition of the teeth, how you treat them, and how your general health condition.
You are right to say, that in 1-4 weeks after tooth extraction, you are not advised to consume foods or drinks that are too hot, too hard, and also sticky. Not only that, you are also advised to limit blowing, gargling too hard, and excessive physical activity. With the steps above, your tooth extractions can close again and heal faster. In addition, to speed up healing after tooth extraction, you also need to take medication from your dentist regularly and also control post tooth extraction according to the recommended time.
Regarding smoking, both when you finish tooth extraction and at any time, you are still not advised to do so, given the many risks to your health, such as can interfere with heart health and blood vessels, triggering hypertension, stroke, impotence, etc. which can be very deadly. Therefore, you better make the momentum after tooth extraction as a turning point to stop smoking.
I hope this helps.
