Ummm...why wouldn't you just ask your dentist/oral surgeon? Or do you not trust his "wisdom" on this one?

Weird. I posted this in response to the OP's question below

    How very odd. It must be a server bug.
    Time to invest in the stock market
    . My post shows ahead of it, even though I posted later.

    Must be multiple servers where the server's clocks are not in synch. Depends on which server you are "connected" to when you post, mebbe?

    I think it depends mostly on the recovery of the patient. My DD had all four of her wisdom teeth cut out and was on pain killers (Mepergan) for a day and a half and then took Motrin for the pain. On day number three, she felt fine to return to all of her normal activities. My nephew, who plays every sport under the sun, returned to his normal games, practice, etc. a couple of days after his surgery. I wasn't the typical case. I only had two wisdom teeth to be removed (early morning) and we went out for pizza later that evening. Good luck to your son.

    I was just joking about that, of course. ya know, being able to manipulate time cuz I could post answers to questions BEFORE they were asked! Anyway, sorry to the OP to take over this thread...

    my son just had his out last weekend. He was decent over the weekend and then had to have his re-packed with dressing twice. It all depends on your child, their drive for activity and recovery times. I doubt he could play within 48 hours for fear of knocking loose the clots and healing. I do agree with the ones above, check with the surgeon!

    My student made their own arrangements to have the wisdom teeth out the day after finals, so I do not know the surgeon at all...scary! Anyway, just realised it is only three weeks until competition in a contact sport at the international level and I figured I would get better information, faster, too, from CC than trying to find the oral surgeon info with kids on spring break!

    Somemom, I am bugging mine to go to a local college town dentist. His were infected over the spring break and are fine now...he says. But his voice sounds funny. So he said he would make an appointment to get a recommendation of what to do. He has xrays already and has his lower 2 impacted. I was hoping to wait to the end of the summer and have it done here, but I am not so sure now......
