Better to wait: This depends largely on the difficulty of the extractions, whether or not there are open sockets, the amount of bleeding that originally occurred and the level of play. It would be much better and safer to wait at least a few days. Having said that, call and ask the dentist who actually treated you as he\she knows best based upon your individual circumstances.
