Take it easy : Contact sports requiet proper healing of the tissue so it doesn't rip open on contact with other players. Usually it requires about one week for initial healing that allows you to work out but to avoid contact. Maybe another week for normal practice. Every one heals at different rate and depends on amount of surgery. Best to ask the surgeon before scheduling tthe surgery. ...Read more

In general, it is most important to keep the extraction site clean and free of food debris as it is healing. Brush and rinse the site starting 24 hours after the tooth was removed. Be certain to maintain your postoperative appointments with the dentist who performed the procedure. ...Read more
