How soon after having 4 teeth pulled can my child resume softball?

My 9 year old daughter is having 4 baby teeth pulled tomorrow (Tuesday morning). She is playing on a travel softball team and has practice on Thursday evening. Would she be able to practice, or would she be in danger of a dry socket? The evening are now rather chilly and windy.

  • What did the dentist say?

  • Ask the doctor, but I would think it should be OK. See how it feels. If a tooth falls out on its own there isn't pain 2 days later, but see how she feels.
