I am going to be having a few surgical extractions done on May 29th, or at least i am considering it. My teeth are in very poor condition, and the teeth that i am having taken out are broken down to the gums. My question is will my mouth and gums be healed enough to go back to work 14hrs a day 7 days a week starting on June 6th? Is that enough time to heal? My dentist says yes, but since I wont be getting a denture, or anything to cover the holes in my gums, I'm worried my gums wont be healed enough to withstand working hard outside for extended amounts of time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
