Default Re: wisdom teeeth out... hookah?

dental student here! and the 2nd post, hippiemomma, gives good advice!
Spitting, sucking or rinsing creates pressure in the mouth that can dislodge the clot = BAD
Smoking , especially with the hookah, creates big pressures, but also the nicotine has vasoconstricting properties that can impair healing.

if you do get dry socket, that means more antibiotics, GREAT pain, and even longer without smoking.. so just take a week or two off. you'll be much happier in the end
