    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?

    frequently rinse with salt water, or salt and baking soda to keep your gums sterilized.

    I couldn't do that yesterday as there was a LOT of posts about not rinsing for first 24 hrs but I can do that now :)

    Small dry bongs, salt water mouth rinses (don't swish water between teeth for at least the next few days at least), sodium ascorbate (vit c) mouth soaks also help a ton!

    I smoked straight after mine and just made sure not to get much negative pressure in my mouth from sucking cigs/bongs. Risky business haha

    I know right next time I'll plan ahead and make a tincture lol but it's pretty painless and it's been less than 48 hours so I must be doing something right

    Lol, I was hitting the weed in the car on the way home.
    Then again, I was also smoking weed on the way to the hospital when I had a heart attack.
