DOUBLE JAW SURGERY SMOKING

#1 Post by xjoe28 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:54 pm

Hello all.
I had double jaw surgery on 10-12-17. Almost 3 months ago. I havent smoked since. But I plan on smoking again. Im pretty sure I could at this point since everything is healed up and im basically almost back to normal life.
Any reasons why I shouldnt smoke yet as far as my surgery went?

If you haven't smoked in 3 months why would you start back up?
Upper ceramics 5/21/14, Lower stainless 5/28/14
Double jaw surgery was 6/18/15. Estimated time Jan 2016; still on at my 2 year anniversary...

Braces removed 7/20/18; upper and lower Hawley and Essix retainers with bonded lower too.

I'm emphatically against extraction orthodontics! It's easier for the orthodontist; not better for the patient!!!
