    Cigarette smoke is a horrible irritant.
    Sucking on anything after that procedure is very bad.

    I remember when I made my ex go and have her wisdom teeth cut out.. Believe me, I did not want to .. but I knew it was best, for her. Man it was horrible. I wouldn't let her smoke very much, at all(looking back on it I should have just cancelled her smoking completely. I'll never have a lady friend smoking, ever again.), but I also didn't want her withdrawing from nicotine while she was so miserable anyway. She, of course, ended up with the dry socket.

    There is nothing worse than when your woman has just had her wisdom teeth removed... I took care of HER for over three weeks.. and she couldn't do something VERY important. God, I am so wonderful, I just took care of her even though she couldn't take care of me!!

    I'd say that cigarette smoking did that dry socket to her. A cigarette, it's producing a horrible irritant and you have to suck on it.

    Just set your e-cig up to be easy draw. If it's a hard pull unscrew it a bit. If you have cartos run a small wire through them and make sure the little hole is centered. I know that pg will dry you out in some ways, but, I don't imagine it'd cause "dry socket".

    Oh god I hope I never have to be with a woman through that again. That was torture. Looking in there all of the time checking it for her and .. Well it was just torture. Oh my Lord. But at the same time I felt so good about myself being such an angel for her.

    I had 2 wisdom teeth done twice in July, didn't vape afterwards. But I was counting the minutes,
    And I'd take not vaping over a dry socket any day.
    I just vaped through my nose to see what would happen thanks to this post.. and it worked.. But don't do that if you're vaping menthol. It burned the piss outta me over here!!! But it DOES work!! Then I realize I am out of alcohol, and I have to go and wash the end of this thing by hand instead of just wiping it off with an alcohol rag. So look at all of this work I had to do to find this out. LoL !

    Hey I had another idea!! Instead of sucking on an e-cig like you have to with a cigarette.... You can simply "breathe in" the e-cig vapor.. Like this, seal your lips around the e-cig and "breathe in through your mouth". I just bet that won't bother your gums at all!!

    I can see it being better than smoking because you need less suction when using a manual battery than an analog.

    On the other hand, vaping can dehydrate you very very easily. You need blood clots to form and stay in the holes left behind by the extraction. Be very careful and be smart.

    I've had 3 oral surgeries for tooth extraction and I *smoked* after all of them. After the wisdom teeth, I don't think I made it as far as the parking lot before I started demanding my smokes.

    Anywho, I basically told the doctor there was no way in Hades I was ever going to not smoke for 3 days (this being, of course, before ecigs), and she said I should at least stuff some gauze over it, so that's what I did.

    No dry socket for me!

    I had a non-smoking coworker get it twice though, so, like anything else, it's 50% how you take care of yourself and 50% luck of the draw.

    Not only do the docs say no smoking, but no straws and no carbonated liquids, don't want to suck or fizz the clots out. That's not to say I ever listened on the smoking point, and yeah, small pieces of gauze work great. I ended up with dry socket the first time, but after using the gauze the other 3, never had it again.

    After having 4 wisdom teeth extracted I didn't listen. I paid with the misery of dry sockets. Sucking from a pv is about the same as sucking from a cigarette. Do so at your own risk and good luck. If you develop dry sockets it will be memorable. Trust me.

    Dry socket is, indeed, uniquely and horrifyingly painful.

    Make sure to pick up some clove oil/eugenol and Orabase (a very thick numbing cream) just in case. These are ONLY two things that will work if it happens.

    Well its been 4 days and no problems. Feels like all three are healing perfectly. Ive been vaping the whole time - with the attys screwed on loosely!

    Im notorious for quick healing... In 2001, i literally got my face cleaved in half; through my nostril and completely severed upper lip, but because it was a clean cut the plastic surgeon was able to put my face back together perfectly. Dude was a miracle worker. When i got home i looked like frankenstein and we were all pretty sure id have a gnarly scar... you can barely make out the line today. Though there are still funny sensation-based things like touching my upper lip and feeling my nostril tingle hehe.

    Just figured id give an update.
