Newly removed Wisdom teeth

Just got my wisdom teeth out last week. Read a small article that said 2-8 weeks before getting back in the water. Anyone have any thoughts or problems with theirs? Should the wait be longer?

I had one removed but don’t remember if I was told to wait. You may can ask DAN if you have too.

+1 for checking with DAN. I would think if they were open I would have concerns about the clots - don’t want to do anything that might cause a dry socket!

What did DAN say? You can call them to ask questions even if your not a DAN member.
