  • Smoking normally affects the tissue healing but it is long time back you got the surgery done. So directly it does affect the plats as such but if you donot maintain a very good oral hygiene then it can cause the failure. Rest you can discuss with your oral surgeon about smoking. for more info on do's and don'ts after dental surgery you can check our website...
