  • Extractions sockets take time to heal and if it is surgical extraction with bone cutting, which most of wisdom tooth extractions are, then it may take 2-3 weeks to heal. If the swelling has gone down and pain is gradually decreasing then there is nothing to worry about. The gum tissue will also heal and bump will dissolve with time. However keep on taking the meds regularly and follow all instructions given by dentist. for more info on wisdom tooth extraction you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/article_care-after-wisdom-tooth-extraction-258.aspx
