so this little handout my dentist gave me said that i should abstain from smoking for five days after my operation. i got my teeth out at approximately 2 pm, october 3rd. right now it's 4 am, october 8th. if my gums still feel noticably sore (more or less how they felt two days ago) but not getting any worse, is that a green light to start smoking again?
