Two weeks post op you should be fine. I think your risks are minimal at this point, especially if you have no pain or swelling. If that concerned, you can always visit your oral surgeon for a quick look.

You may start normal tooth brushing the day after the surgery or after bleeding is controlled. If concerned, after 2 weeks, see your dentist for post- surgery appointment and consultation.
