Disclaimer

had 3 wisdom taken out and 1 molar bone grafted. avoided smiling and laughing for long time (2 months). does this make jaw bone more prone to damage?

Nope: The extractions, the graft, and not smiling or laughing will not affect the integrity of your jaw.

Irrelevant: Depending on the complexity of the surgery, your age and your individual recovery capacity, you should expect to get back to normal in 2-3 weeks.

The opposite is true: flossing your teeth after a meal can help to prevent gum disease and teeth to shift.
