I had all of my wisdom teeth removed 10 days ago. I didn’t smoke at all, like the doctor had said, because I didn’t want to get dry socket. I still took my BCP, and was told I was already at risk for dry socket, then ended up getting it anyways in my bottom left side. I felt no pain for the first two days after my wisdom teeth surgery, but believe I developed my dry socket 7 days ago, I didn’t end up seeking treatment till Monday. The pain is definitely tolerable and even sometimes completely gone. i have returned to work however and my normal life activities other than smoking. I am very stressed and need to smoke, wondering what will happen if I do or if it’s probably okay to smoke.
