After having wisdom teeth out, the recovery is usually quite gradual. Patients should notice some steady improvement each day.

Key takeaways:

  • A full recovery from wisdom tooth extraction may take up to a fortnight.
  • The duration of the recovery depends on how straightforward the procedure was.
  • After seven days, your dentist will remove any stitches used to close the incision(s) in your gum(s).

Mild or medium-strength pain relief medication may help to relieve discomfort following wisdom tooth removal.
