did your dentist explain the complications of smoking afterwards? do you mind the pain of dry socket? does an extended healing time bother you? if not smoke away!

Lynn did not mention how bad dry socket pain would be.  Even narcotics are not enough to dull the pain, it will have you doubled over in pain.  You will also take the healing from 2-3 weeks to more than a month.  Try to use this time to quit smoking, go grab some gum and quit today.
