How long will it take to recover from oral surgery?

It really depends on the type of oral surgery you had and how complicated it is (for example, was the tooth impacted, or was it loose and wiggly?). Your general health will also play a big role. Also if you are a smoker, you will have delayed healing, as smoking can inhibit the wound healing process. Usually, after an extraction you can expect some pain and swelling for 24-72 hours. If the extraction is a more complicated surgical extraction, these symptoms may persist for several more days, with full healing potentially taking several weeks, or rarely, a whole month. We will provide you with appropriate medications  as well as post op instructions after the surgery. Taking the medications as well as following the post op instructions will promote faster healing with less complications.

Our goal is to help you with your dental needs in a stress free setting, we understand your general fear of tooth extractions, and are well trained to help you overcome it. Please contact us at 425-947-2727 if you have any questions!
