Hey guys I wasn't sure where to post this so I just put it here. I had a single upper wisdom tooth pulled yesterday, and I've been smoking bongs (yes I know about dry socket that's why I'm here) now I know it's a risk and that it's all I've seen in response to other forums about this. I DON'T WANT to hear about 'oh just don't do it' I've seen enough of those. What I'd like to know is - even once the anaesthesia wore off my mouth felt fine. Ive only had to have one Panadol since to take any pain away. I've been soaking gauze in water, squeezing it out so it's just moist not dripping wet, and putting that over it clenching all my teeth together to hold it over the socket while I suck (very small) cones. If any resistance comes up I stop pulling and just lightly suck up what's in the Billy. When I woke up this morning after doing that a few times the day it was pulled, my mouth feels pretty much fine bit sore to open it and a very slight ache but other than that I feel great. What are the chances of getting dry socket doing this, and is there anything else I can do to help prevent it?
