How long before you can smoke? I'm at 48 hours. Just started vaping kinda. Lol I'm jest lightly inhaling the vape through my.nose. It's not to bad bit is not a good hit.
When can I smoke normally?
I have no more bleeding. Im tender still.
I do have white skin growing over it which I remember from my wisdom teeth that it's healing
When am I out of the water with dry sockets?:thumbsup:

You are usually safe from dry socket 72 hours after extraction. You can smoke now but the longer you can go the better. Some people put a covering over the extraction site when they smoke, others just smoke.

The white stuff is normal and good, it means you are healing. :butterfly:

my dad has had many extractions and procedures and says he always smoked after with no issues :)

I don't smoke but even if I did I'm so paranoid about having more pain that I wouldn't.

Good luck!
