I had all 4 pulled when I was 13. They healed up in about 2 days. But stayed swollen for about a day.
Reply:I just had mine out a few weeks ago. Those holes are going to stay there a while because your body has to fill them in naturally. But luckily, your mouth heals quickly. You'll start feeling better in a few days. Make sure you use the syringe they gave you and clean out that hole though, food gets stuck in there and can cause pain.
Reply:it usually takes anywhere from a week to two weeks.


Just make sure you take the meds you were given and eat soft things. like yogurt, fruit smoothies, mashed potatoes etc.


Cause if you eat something solid too soon, you can tear out a stitch out or lose a blood clot which is about a million times more painful than just healing pain lol.


Trust me I know.


I had my wisdom teeth taken out in august of '06.


And I lost all four blood clots and ended up with dry socket in three of the slots.


It was MISERABLE hahahaha.


But I hope you get better =]
Reply:They should only hurt for a week or so,be sure to do as the oral surgeon said.





I have to get all 5(I have an extra one) cut out soon!!
