How Long Is The Recovery Time?
Recovery time varies from patient to patient and may be subject to the procedure itself. For example, patients who are older than their teen years and/or have waited until they feel pain may have a more complex extraction and a slightly longer recovery time. However, in general, you can expect some minor discomfort and possible swelling for two or three days, possibly a week. Your oral surgeon may prescribe medication to manage any pain.
