Is it normal to still feel sockets 12 days after wisdom teeth removal?

I got my wisdom teeth removed almost 2 weeks ago, and while I don't have any more pain, I can still feel the sockets. Just want to know if that's normal and how long it takes for them to completely heal. It's annoying to feel them.

Thanks!

Hi,
Do you mean you feel pain?

I had my 4 wisdom teeth out 5 weeks ago and the top sockets closed up within 1-2 weeks. My lower teeth were impacted, so the sockets are taking longer to heal. When I saw my dentist last week for a filling, he said it's normal for the bony impacts to take longer to close up and not to worry as long as it's pain-free and not irritated and swollen.
