Post op instructions: The dentist who removed your wisdom is responsible for supplying you with oral and\or written instructions and your aftercare. You should call and ask them any questions that you have. Specific instruction may vary from office to office and is case specific.

Recovery: The initial recovery and healing from wisdom tooth surgery usually occurs over 3-5 days. Avoid eating crunchy, spicy, or difficult-to-chew foods, smoking, alcohol, exercise and excessive spitting. Just follow your surgeon's instructions for speedy recovery.
