Welcome to HCM
I would like to tell you that after tooth extraction, a blood clot slowly forms in the hole left in the bone by the removed tooth. This blood cloth is the initial phase of the healing process. The blood clot’s formation can be slowed down when a person smokes, either from the suction done during the smoking
action, or from the chemical toxins that come from a cigarette. This can lead to complications such as a dry socket
, which is a temporary and very painful condition that occurs when the blood clot forms slowly.
It is therefore recommended to wait at least 48 to 72 hours before smoking after a dental extraction
. Smoking is very bad for someone’s health and stopping completely is mostly recommended.Continue your medicines as prescribed by your dentist
.Along with that do betadine
gargles 3-4 times a day.Get a check-up done after a week.
