sounds like maybe a dry socket, she can try warm salt water rinses, but the whole needs dressed and antibiotics prescribed.

dry socket

what are the odds of a smoker who has never had dry socket to get dry socket??? and how will u be able to tell if u are getting it before the pain kicks in???

Not supposed to smoke for at least 24 hours post op. Smokers don't heal as well/fast so I think the chances are greater. Don't think there's a way to tell, the pain gets worse instead of better.
