    Default Help, Gotta have a dental implant and supposed to quit smoking ????

    Been vaping for about 18 months. Still have 4 or 5 cigarettes a day. Don't know why. Just still like it.

    Anyway ..... I'm going to have a dental implant in mid-october. The Oral surgeon says to minimize the implant having problems and "not taking" I should STOP SMOKING. This apparently includes ALL NICOTINE. He was not impressed with my ecig's and stated that nicotine in any form was as big a problem with the implant as the other bad stuff in regular cigarettes.

    Anyway.....I'm gonna switch to zero nicotine. Couple of questions;

    I read somewhere that zero nicotine actually still has some nicotine. Is this true??

    Did any of you who switched to zero nicotine have terrible nicotine withdrawal?
    I used to think my "habit" was more about the process of smoking/oral fixation/handling, ect as much as nicotine. But 4 or 5 years ago when I quit smoking cold turkey, I had some terrible withdrawal. Depression, panic attacks, just generally feeling crappy for the 3 or 4 months while I quit.

    Anybody had a dental implant and any smoking issues?
    Anybody have anything to say about going to zero nicotine ??

    Thanks for the input

    0mg nic juices will have 0mg nicotine. The juices that have nictone are mixed with 100% pure nicotine base. So if you get 0mg nicotine juice it will be nicotine free. I had a severe broken femur and my Dr told me i should quit for it to heal. I didn't quit and it still healed just fine.

    Hello, I had a dental implant and smoked during the whole process (for those not familiar it takes months from start to finish). I was told over and over by the dentist not to smoke and would light up before I left the parking lot. I never had any problems, and now I vape with nicotine but it's a risk. I have read/been told that the implant can fail but back then in my "smoking thinking" mind I didn't listen.

    I look into the stars. I look into the moon.

    I tried going to 0mg once and it just made me chain-vape more than I ever. My body didn't like the lack of nic, but it's just one of those things, you tell your self "Too bad." And deal with it. Until I got more high nic liquid. As long as you have the oral and handling fix, it makes it a bit easier.

    If it is a tobacco flavor there will be a trace amount of nicotine, it happens becouse of the process of takeing the flavor from tobacco plant.
    Personally, I don't think this would be enough to worry about.
    Or, you could use any juice that is not a tobacco flavor.

    I had some oral surgery a few years back and was told to stop smoking so it would make healing easier.Three weeks after the surgery,the
    doctor said"you heal so good,you must have stopped smoking",wrong,the only time I didn't light one in the parking lot was after surgery,but
    I don't remember anything after"count backwards from one hundred".Of course it might not work like that for everyone.

    I had two implants in March. I vaped right up to the surgery, and pretty soon afterward. No ill effects. But I would expect since it does affect the body, the doctor has a point about no Nic.

    I had 3 implants done in Feb., when I was still smoking. I cut back but never really stopped until I found e-cigs in July. Since I have been vaping no problems but today, one of my implants is loose. I go to the dentist tomorrow to see if its the crown or the implant. I hope to God its only the crown. I'll let you know what the verdict is tomorrow.
