    Wisdom tooth extraction

    I have to get my wisdom tooth extracted soon (in the next few weeks), and I wondered about vaping before, during & after. Any helpful thoughts, hygiene tips (guess my mouth will be bleeding for a few days), would be most appreciated.

    Atm, I'm using cartomizers with plastic drip tips, so I thought maybe I would just toss them after a days use for a week or so.

    Last time I had a tooth extracted I was told not to smoke as the suction could dislodge a clot and cause dry socket.

    I vaped as soon as I got out, bit did suck slowly and cautiously. No problem that time.

    Thanks RC.

    I hadn't even thought of that. I think I take a pretty light draw anyway - never hitting cut off on any battery (if that's how you go by), so I'll try to suck even slower.

    Yeah i smoked when i had mine out even though your not supposed to. I think i kept them covered with the gause cause i was scared of dislodging the clot. My only advice is get some heavy duty pain killers, they really hurt when the numbing stuff wears off.

    I couldn't vape for 3 days, my face was the size of a balloon, and all bruised, had a large infection as well, and they needed to cut into the gums alot and grind out the infection from the bone. On the plus side I got some really strong pain killers from the surgeon and with a bottle of bourbon, didn't find the need to vape either, was quite happy and oblivious to the world for a few days.

    As the great Jimi says "Peoples, peoples, peoples" lol, you're going to scare the crappers out of me and I won't go.

    No seriously, it's just one at the top which isn't supposed to be a huge deal. The bottom ones are the hard ones - or so the dentist told me - don't tell me he's just making a light situation here lol?

    I will check with him. I told him I'd given up smoking, but didn't mention vaping. He seems pretty cool, so I'll just tell him when I go back and see what he advises.

    I'm paranoid about the blood clot though CCC. What happens if it does dislodge - just the thing RC says?

    Geez, thinking about this, I better stock up on some of those mini things from the chemist haha. I hope I could at least suck on those!

    Dry socket is something no-one would want.It is treatable.

    I took took the chance as I needed Nic after the visit. I personally would do it again, I am sure.
