Ususlly 7 - 10: Depends on the condition of the surgical site before and after the extraction. Some people are on none, others for 10 - 14 days. Good luck. (quakertown is in my neck of the woods !).

As prescribed: Usually, three days before extraction and 3 to 5 days after extraction. It all depends on the individual case.
