I had my wisdom teeth removed on Tuesday and I’m just curious on How long it took y’all to heal and for the swelling to go down?

A few days for me, just be sure to follow all the protocol.

It varies based on age, overall health, general immune response and method of extraction. I had one removed but it was completely exposed, an easy extraction and I was fully recovered from it in a day or two.

I had mine surgically removed and the healing wasn't bad at all. It took about a week to feel normal, I think. Probably closer to 2 weeks before I started eating solid food again. I lived on applesauce. Just follow the recovery protocol and you'll be fine.

Mine took about 5 days to feel normal and like myself again.

I threw up a lot the first day and luckily didn’t swell too much. I just rested the majority of the time and I think that’s what helped. Follow the aftercare as well! Good luck on recovery.
