can i smoke weed after a root canal

Is it ok to smoke weed if you’ve just had a root canal?

No. if it did I’d have a gazillion failed root canals. The only thing smoke will do is stain your teeth (easily fixed), but it isn’t going to hurt a root canal procedure.

i gotta say the stereotypical: you shouldn’t really smoke weed, but since you already do.

um i’ve never had a root canal so i can’t say from experience. but i would think it would depend if you still have a raw open wound in your mouth. it would probably hurt & the smoke could possibly make an infection form or make it take longer to heal.

i would wait untilit forms a scab or something/starts to close up 🙂 otherwise why not, go for it.

you will not be able to smoke for 48 hours after the root canal. Talk to you dentist about getting other medication to take the place of the marijuanna for those 2 days.

You’re cool. Just don’t use a water bong. Stick with any low vacuum method and you’ll be fine.

Because you don’t know what has been prodded, poked and disturbed during the procedure, it’s best to err on the cautious side. The suction created whilst smoking ain’t going to do you any favours. You may not literally get a dry socket, but the sensation can be similar and extremely unpleasant. There’s a reason your dentist most likely told you not to smoke just yet.

TBH, you’re going to smoke regardless of any advice that you’re given so I’d say crack on with it and hope that you don’t disturb anything. If you do, get ready with the painkillers because it hurts like a bastard.

(I smoked and drank alcohol immediately after an extraction because I’m a knobhead)

I just had a root canal treatment three hours ago.. i had a starting infection so the dentist opened up my filling and removed all the nasty stuff. Then she…
