Hello and thank you for your question.
It is extremely foolish to smoke in general. It is foolish to smoke either cigarettes or marijuana especially when healing from a tooth abscess
. The smoke is full of chemicals that hinder the healing process by causing vasoconstriction
of the blood vessels going to the area that provide the antibodies
needed to fight the infection as well as the repairative material that rebuilds the damaged tissue. The suction of the smoking
and the smoke itself can cause destruction of the blood clot leading to a very painful dry socket
. The smoking also reduces the ability of your body to fight the infection and prevents optimal levels of the antibiotic to get to the area.
Take NSAIDs instead to help with pain and swelling.
