Gums, it’s been 2 weeks since full extractions. I have a whitish gray covering on my extraction sights. Is that normal?

Yes is the short answer. If you are not having pain with it. It is your bodies way of healing the injury.
IF, you have pain, CALL dentist right away!!!

Thank you, I worry about infection. It hurts bad to put in the bottom denture because my bottom has a lot of bone spurs coming out. It’s ok to leave them out isn’t it?

Where I got my dentures did not inform me about much of anything. I did not know about bone spurs or the whitish gray of the gums. The one thing they said was to rinse with salt water . I do this about 5 to 6 times a day. And used clinical mouth wash 3 or 4 times a day.

Granny I leave mine in for 2 days before I take them out and scrub them down but I refresh it with these little tiny toothbrushes that Colgate makes that I can carry in my pocket you get like 20 of them in a bag for about 4 bucks at Walmart. But I'm still working and I'm not sure where you are if you're retired or not. And that's a personal thing it depends on a lot of different things but yeah you can leave them in overnight that is not a problem but you do want to allow your gums to breathe sometimes.
