The mozzarella sticks sounded delicious at the start but reading about your potential dental debacle (dry socket?) made me think otherwise.

Can you reheat them in an air fryer, convection oven, or possibly even a regular oven at a later date?

No. Maybe, but in my experience no. They leech some moisture out of the cheese and get unavoidably soggy. However comments are saying yes so maybe I’m just dumb.

Air fryer generally solves that quite well. 400F for 5 minutes or so is plenty to crisp up and re-warm them

Part of my problem is that I usually just eat them and don’t have any left. It’s my wife and kids who leave a couple, and we usually fail to properly refrigerate them after, so they wouldn’t be good safe anyway.

I can think of nothing that would make them unsafe.

I mean, cheese was invented as a preservation method for milk. It ain't gonna go bad in a few hours. Especially with all of the salt in those bastards. 😀

If they were Steak 'Ums or something, sure... but...

Well again, I work at a restaurant. My idea of “food safe” isn’t the layman’s version. I know it wouldn’t really be an issue, but some part of the back of my brain just doesn’t trust food that’s been left out.

This!! I worked at dominos for 7 years and while food service is never perfect on food safety I'm way more cautious than my roommates who haven't worked in food... they will eat meat that's been sitting out for hours and barely cold to the touch and I want to puke just thinking about it.

Given that I hate to waste food, I’d be willing to try most anything. I have zero experience with this, but I’d rather experiment with this (and fail) than continue to eat something that is irritating the f out of my injured gums and possibly compromising the extraction site(s). Air fryers and convection ovens seem ideal for this kind of thing as they both use forced convection to heat food.
