Post op instructions: In most cases, people can resume normal non-strenuous activity the day after wisdom tooth removal. However, they may not feel up to it, depending upon the difficulty of the surgery. Your doctor will give you specific instructions tailored to you and your procedure. If unsure, call and ask.
