Yep. No issue at all, 48 hours is normally enough to allow enough healing to occur.
If you feel OK. If you feel ok & you are already on the mend it is probably ok, check with the dentist that removed them.
Eventually. I would think that you may want to give it a day or two for the wound (s) to heal.
Time. You need tincture of time to permit healing. Give it a few days. And don't be foolish, wear a mouth guard for any contact sport.
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.
No. Wait about a week before any vigorous exercise. Ask your oral surgeon how long to wait.
Soccer. If he feels ok there is no reason not to.
He had wisdom teeth taken out and is wanting to know when can he start playing sports (soccer) and have intercourse again?
Wisdom teeth. Each patient and each procedure is a little different, so your best bet is to ask the surgeon who actually treated him.
Can I get away with not having my wisdom teeth removed? I have two wisdom teeth that have never erupted that my dentist says I need to have removed. They're not causing my any pain or problems, and they've been there for some time. Will I be fine if I don
There. There is much debate on this subject and I am sure the other panelists will add their views. Extraction of the impacted wisdom teeth is a surgical procedure, and the surgery has risks of complications. They are asymptomatic, and if they are not affecting the second molars in front of them by trapping food, then there may not be a benefit to having them removed.
Over. Over the past 10 years specific research has been ongoing which is looking at the specific risks and benefits of removal of asymptomatic third molars (wisdom teeth). There is a "white paper" discussing the results of these studies located on the website of the american association of oral and maxillofacial surgeons (www. Aaoms. Org). There is also associated information that provides an excellent discussion of wisdom teeth and their management. Look under "conditions and treatment" on the right side for "wisdom teeth". Though asymptomatic now, third molars that have not fully erupted into the mouth in a functional and cleanable position can lead to long term problems such as gum disease that can spread to adjacent areas, decay of the third molar or adjacent teeth, recurrent infections (pericoronitis), cysts, tumors, and jaw fracture. It is better to prevent these problems by extraction of non-functional third molars as a late teenager than to have to under go the surgery when you are older and you are not as healthy. Also the surgery may be more difficult and recovery longer if done at a later age. Have your general dentist recommend a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon in your area that can examine you and provide an explanation of your options for both surgery and anesthesia.
Depends. Usually if your dentist recommends it then I would say do it. Xray probably reveals an asymptomatic impaction. But wisdom teeth that are asymptomatic today doesn't mean asymptomatic tomorrow. The younger you are the fewer complications and the faster the healing.
Doctor's advice. Why avoid the dentist's advice? Impacted wisdom teeth do not have to cause pain or "problems" that you would notice. They may be creating destruction of other teeth, may have cavities, may contribute to gum disease, etc. And you aren't aware of it. Get a second opinion for peace of mind or get them out.
