I just had my wisdom teeth pulled about 4 days ago and they had to cut in my cheeks to get them out and they feel raw how long does it take for them to heal?

  • It will take another week for healing to take place. The soft tissue of cheek has good healing power. It will healing within a week or 10 days but the bone healing takes longer and can take upto 6 weeks. Meanwhile maintain very good oral hygiene by doing proper brushing. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times day. You can also use some good quality antimicrobial mouthwash. You should take care that the wound should not get infected and take all meds and follow all instructions given by your dentist.
